I spy better Term Deposit rates

Stephen Thaxter- Senior Partner and Principal Adviser

Sovereign Wealth Partners

The swift repricing of cash is welcome news for savers who have been starved of interest income for years. So far, call account rates haven’t moved much but there’s been plenty of action in term deposits. Scanning the boards on 8th May I can see government guaranteed rates starting with 2’s, 3’s and even a lonely 4%! These rates are almost triple what they were just two months ago – Hallelujah!

Example deals available at 8 May 2022:

1 year 2.75% Macquarie Bank via Macquarie wrap

18 months 3.30% AMP via Australian Money Market

2 years 3.30% Macquarie Bank via Macquarie wrap

5 years 4.05% NAB via Netwealth and Judo Bank via Australian Money Market
