Less than 1%

If you are looking to renew your fix deposit this month, you would probably be looking at dismay rates all across the banks in Singapore. Given that we have FD due this month, we decide to investigate which banks would provide the best rates.

Most banks would not give you anything more than 1% for Fix Deposits place in a year. 

From the comparison, we came to this conclusion

  • Best rates for less than $49,999 fo less than 1 year
DBS: 1.1% for 11 months
  • Best rates for any amount for less than 1 year
UOB : 0.9% for 10 months

  • Best rates for any tenure
Maybank 2.05% for 36 months (Amount 5,000-20,000)

  • Existing customers with FD gets better rates
This applies to DBS/POSB and SCB

  • Deposit rates are falling across banks
FD rates, as well as high yield savings account, have seen the rates fallen across the board. As of now, most of the bank's rates would not be able to keep pace with inflation. If that is the case, you might need to consider an alternative to preserve your wealth.
