Tell me more about the African Bank Fixed Deposit Investment Account?

Investing doesn’t have to be expensive. This account requires a minimum opening account amount of R500. Investment terms range from 3 months to 60 months.  You can invest a lump sum for a fixed period.

The interest rate does not change for the duration of your investment, giving you the assurance of a fixed amount that you’ll earn in interest returns every month.

Interest is paid out monthly, every 6 months, every 12 months or upon maturity.

Additional deposits are allowed for the first 7 days after initial funding. After this, you’ll only earn interest on the amount that you have invested.

Interest amounts range from 7% to 10.25%. These rates are highly competitive and some of the best in the market.

If you do need to withdraw your funds, you can contact African Bank and fill in the necessary withdrawal form. In exceptional cases the customer can apply to the bank for early withdrawal of the funds- this is at the bank’s discretion and a penalty fee will apply.
