Highest Fixed Deposit Interest Rates Promotion in Singapore

Fixed Deposit Accounts in Singapore

Fixed deposit accounts in Singapore offer a much higher interest rate (at least a 1.00% p.a. difference) as compared to your basic savings deposit account. Fixed deposit interest rates has been rising over the past year and has been hitting new 10 year highs. Contrary to belief that certain foreign banks might be more risky, the first $75,000 parked in fixed deposits at any bank is risk-free. This is due to the fact that the Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation (linked to the Singapore government) insures all deposits in any individual bank or finance company operating in Singapore for a sum of up to $75,000. This amount was raised from $50,000 on 1 Apr 2019 and is good news for depositors as it provides more security for depositors.

Consumer banks or finance companies operating in Singapore are also subjected to strict capital requirements well above global standards to protect depositors. Fixed deposits are hence considered very low risk financial products although the returns might be unexciting compared to other investment products.

Tenure and Deposit Amount

As a rule of the thumb, banks or financial companies reward depositors with higher interest for longer tenures and higher deposit amounts. They frequently conduct fixed deposit promotions for certain tenures and deposit amounts to attract fresh funds so as to boast their deposit base. These limited time promotions are usually extremely competitive and might or might not be renewed upon expiry. Sometimes, promotional gifts are offered if certain minimum deposit amount is met.

For a fair comparison of fixed deposit rates (including promotional and non-promotional rates) in Singapore, we have included the comparison table below for reference. The fixed deposit interest rates are based on popular tenures of between 6 to 18 months and fresh funds of $75,000 (Risk-free since insured by SDIC). We have also included the latest one year returns for Singapore Savings Bonds (Risk-free bonds by Singapore government) so as to facilitate comparison of Singapore Savings Bonds vs Singapore Fixed Deposits.

Best Highest Fixed Deposit Interest Rates in Singapore

This highest fixed term deposit rate is by Maybank Fixed Deposit which also offers a fixed term deposit rate of 2.10% p.a. with a tenure of 9 months and for funds of $20,000 and above but only if accompanied with a deposit of $1,000 into existing Maybank banking account for every $10,000 deposited into the fixed deposit account.

I have $800,000 to put up. Every month I will need about $30,000 for expenses. I am looking for a bank with good return. Can you advise.

Hi,

Fixed Deposits provide a risk free and stable returns of up to around 2% (as of current rates) and can only provide a returns of up to $800,000 * 0.02 = $16,000 a year. If you are looking for higher returns, you might need to look for riskier products such as stocks, bonds or any other financial products. You might want to contact an investment adviser on how best to allocate your funds so as to maximise your returns.
