Term Deposit Accounts
A term deposit also known as fixed deposit is a scheme that locks in a specified amount of funds for a fixed period of time. These funds can be fixed for a tenor ranging from 3 months upto 10 years. In case of term deposit, depositor needs to maintain a current or savings account with the bank and can access the funds through that account. As the funds are fixed, no cheque book or debit card is issued against a term deposit account.
The Term Deposit is considered as a safe form of investment and is therefore appealing investors with low risk appetites. Term deposits offer a higher rate of return to the depositor as the funds are fixed or tied up for a specified period of time. Encashment of the deposit before the maturity of the tenor may in certain cases result in a penalty /charges for the customer.
