    Is the interest calculated for the IMB Wisdom Saver done on a compounding basis?

      Hi Vera,

      Thanks for your question.

      This account pays interest monthly so it uses the compound interest method.

      Kindly note though that its variable interest rate is applied using a step up method. This means that the first part of your balance up to $1,999.99 is calculated at a one interest rate, while the next portion up to $49,200 receives a higher rate. The highest interest rate is applied only to the portion of your balance that is in excess of $49,200.01.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
