  • On the anniversary, the interest is calculated, compounded, and paid
  • An additional Retro-Rate payment is calculated to increase the interest earned in the previous years of the term
  • Since each of the 5 years has a higher rate than the previous year's rate, the longer you hold the term, the higher the interest

Rate Bumping: Protect your current rate of return, while having the flexibility of bumping up your term deposits to a higher interest rate in the future.On your term deposit's anniversary, you can rewrite your investment to a locked-in term of 1 year or more, with no penalty
