Give your hard-earned savings the security they deserve
We know how hard you’ve worked for your savings, and we understand how useful it is to know upfront how much income your investment will earn. That’s why we created our Fixed Rate Deposit Account, a savings account that offers you peace of mind with interest rates fixed from the start. This account is ideal if you don’t need to access your savings for a year or more, and you can open it on your own or with someone else.
With competitive interest rates fixed for your choice between 1 to 5 years, you’ll know straightaway how much income your savings will generate - even if other interest rates fall. Ranging from 1.25% AER*
for one year to 1.75% AER*
for five years, you can be confident that your savings will go further with Wesleyan Bank.
