This account has a higher fixed interest rate, than the other accounts, for a predetermined period usually of two, three, six, nine or twelve months duration. Minimum balance for this account is MK25, 000..
It is a fixed contract and interest is forfeited when a customer makes a withdrawal before maturity date.
How will I benefit?
Interest is paid on maturity and customers may re- invest funds at the expiry of the fixed period until such time as the funds are required. Such accounts may also be used as security in the event a customer wishes to borrow money from the bank.
Small and Medium Enterprises
How much will it cost me?
