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 paying a penalty fee. During your tem, 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.
