Time deposit accounts
A time deposit account offers you a fixed rate of interest over the entire term of your investment. You can invest for the short term or the long term. The choice is yours!
If you run a company that's looking for safe investment, a product with a guaranteed minimum return could well be what you want.
Combination of a savings account and a term investment
Ideal for structural cash surpluses which you can go without for a while and which you can access after having given 32 days’ notice.
