    Hi. I’m an overseas investor (non Australian). Is there any restriction for me to open a term deposit account with any of your recommended banks or financial institution?

      Hi James,

      Thanks for getting in touch! There are different types of accounts for foreign investors to bridge the restriction. As it says on our Offshore Bank Accounts review page here. Each bank will have its own account opening process. With most, you are going to need to provide the following documents” National ID, passport, a bank statement from which the funds will be withdrawn and a statement about the source of those funds and the purpose for setting up the account.

      Hope this helps!

      Best,
      Nikki

      Hi Lorraine,

      Thank you for reaching out to finder.

      The Financial Claims Scheme (FCS) is the Australian Government’s guarantee on deposits and is administered by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA). The FCS guarantees deposits, up to a cap, held in Authorised Deposit-taking Institutions (ADI’s) – this includes Australian banks, building societies and credit unions. It provides protection to depositors up to the limit of the scheme and seeks to provide depositors with timely access to their deposits in the unlikely event of the failure of their ADI.
      From 1 February 2012, the FCS guarantees deposits up to a cap of $250,000 per account-holder, per ADI.
      The FCS applies to deposits held in MyState Bank’s transaction, savings and term deposit accounts. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie
