  • SGD Fixed Deposit interest rates for new placements and renewals will be computed based on the Total SGD Fixed Deposit Balances, instead of each placement and/or renewal.
    Example
    • My Fixed Deposit account has 2 placements which sum up to S$100,000 (S$30,000 + S$70,000). What is the applicable interest rate for each renewal?
      The total Fixed Deposit account balance is S$100,000 (S$30,000 + S$70,000). Hence, interest rate corresponding to the $100,000 - $249,999 range will apply.
    • I have an existing placement of S$50,000 in my single name Fixed Deposit account and another S$50,000 in a joint Fixed Deposit account. What is the applicable interest rate for each renewal?
      The placements are in different SGD Fixed Deposit accounts. Hence, interest rate corresponding to the $50,000 - $99,999 range will apply for each renewal.
  • Foreign Currency Fixed Deposit interest rates for new placements and renewals will be based on prevailing interest rates.
