Term Deposits are how most of us save

New Roy Morgan research shows term deposits are still Australia’s favourite way to save. Our  Product Manager David Bryde has a great term deposit offer and another great option too.

According to new Roy Morgan Research term deposits are the favourite way for Australians to save.

Almost a third (31.2%) of all savings dollars of Australians aged 14 and over are now held in term deposit accounts. The next largest savings categories are transaction accounts (17.5%) followed by high interest on-line accounts (15.6%).

But there are differences in savings patterns by generation. According to Roy Morgan Pre Boomers and Baby Boomers prefer term deposits while Gen X, Gen Y and Gen Z, prefer transaction accounts.

It's a matter of balancing the need to have access to your money versus the higher returns you can receive by locking your money away for a period of time.

Whether you are a term deposit fan or looking for a high interest at-call account we've got your needs covered at The Greater.

At the moment we have a great Term Deposit offer of 4.4% for a minimum deposit of $5,000 invested for between six and eight months.

The Greater’s Bonus Saver gives you a high interest at-call rate calculated daily and paid monthly(at time of writing 4.3% ) provided you make at least one deposit and no withdrawals.
