What is a term deposit?


A term deposit, also known as time deposit, fixed term deposit, fixed-rate savings account or fixed-rate bond, is an investment bank product which allows a one-time investment of a fixed sum. The sum is for a fixed term and at a fixed interest rate which are determined at the beginning of the term deposit’s life cycle. Term deposits are commonly treated as the safest investment instruments available on the market because they are offered by strictly regulated financial institutions, such as banks, and are typically covered by national deposit guarantee schemes.
