Fixed term and notice accounts

Save your money and make it grow

Sometimes it pays to put your money away for a longer period. Term deposits let you earn interest over a fixed period of time. Without access during the term, but a guaranteed interest rate, it could be a rewarding way to save.

For a little more flexibility, our 40-Day Notice Account gives you the opportunity to save your funds, earn interest and still be able to access your funds with 40 days' notice of withdrawal.
