Green Term Deposits: what you need to know

It’s not just KeepCups and going plastic-free that can help you think green – it could even factor into your savings plan. With our Green Term Deposits, you could give your savings and the low carbon economy a boost.

More than just a colorful name

If you’re looking for a low-risk, dependable, and easy-to-use savings option, a Green Term Deposit could be the right choice to help you hit your savings goals.

Green Term Deposits have all the good parts of our standard Term Deposit – great rate, fixed return, and a competitive loyalty bonus – while also being environmentally conscious. Certified by the Climate Bonds Initiative, you can invest with confidence knowing your savings are matched to a portfolio of renewable energy projects like wind and solar energy and low carbon buildings.

The ins and outs

Your savings are important, which is why our Green Term Deposits are secure, have no fees, and offer a variety of terms to suit your needs. When you apply, you can choose a personal Green Term Deposit with a 2, 5, 7, 8, 10, or 11-month term length for your funds. Once you’ve chosen your term type and length, all you have to do is deposit a minimum of $1,000 (maximum $2,000,000) and your savings will start earning interest.

Show me the money

Say you pop $5,000 in our 10-month Green Term Deposit today, with our competitive interest rates, your savings can grow untouched and earn you $110 in interest. If you decide to then roll your savings over for another 10 months (well done!), you could unlock an extra 0.10% p.a.* with our loyalty bonus. You could even add more funds to your Green Term Deposit when rolling over, taking your savings to the next level.
