How it works

  • Interest rates may get better the more you invest and the longer you invest for.
  • Terms from 30 days to five years for amounts from $1,000 to $5 million.
  • Your rate is locked in for the length of the term.
  • You can’t add money once the term has started, and you get less interest if you need to withdraw the money early and no interest if you withdraw in the first 30 days.
  • If you pay 30% or 33% tax on your income (you earn over $48,000 a year) and you’ve got $10,000 or more to invest a PIE Term Deposit could be a good option.
  • Open and manage your Term Deposit online using internet banking or our mobile app – easy peasey.
For terms longer than a year

Choose to have your interest paid:

  • as a lump sum at the end of your term
  • monthly or quarterly into your bank account.
For terms longer than two years

Access up to 20% of your deposit anytime, without paying a fee or losing any interest.

When the term is up

Choose to:

  • reinvest your original deposit and the interest it earned
  • have it all paid out into your bank account.

You can change this during the term if you need to.

PIE Term Deposits

If you pay 30% or 33% tax on your income (you earn over $48,000 a year) and you’ve got $10,000 or more to invest, only want to invest for up to one year and want your interest at maturity, choose the PIE Term Deposit option when you open your account.

PIE Term Deposits work just like standard Term Deposits, but you’ll only pay 28% tax on the interest income you earn (so you pay less tax if your income tax rate is 30% or 33%), keeping more of your return in your pocket.

Making an early withdrawal

If you need your money before your term is up:

  • you'll have to make a formal application to break the deposit early, because you’re breaking the Term Deposit contract
  • you won’t get any interest if you need to break the deposit in the first 30 days
  • you’ll get a lower rate of interest if you break the deposit after the first 30 days — how much will depend on the rate on the date you invested or the date you withdraw (whichever is lower).
