What is a Term Deposit?

A term deposit is a type of savings account, where you lock away an amount of money for an agreed length of time (a 'term').

This means that unless your term is up, the only way to access your funds is by breaking your term deposit, which can result in your interest rate being reduced or you having to pay a fee. During your term, you're guaranteed a set interest rate for the length of the term you chose.

This way, you can be sure of what return you'll get on your investment.

Peace of mind

Deposits up to $250,000 per account holder per authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI)~ are guaranteed under the Australian Government’s Financial Claims Scheme.

Getting started is easy

A Greater Bank term deposit can be opened with as little as $1,000 and can be opened as a single or joint account.
