Which Bank has the highest Fix Deposit Rates?

HL bank has the highest rates in town at 2.75% over 12 months. Among the local banks, UOB leads with 2.7% over 15 months ( This is not reflected on their website, but it is available at the branch). SCB has the lowest FD rates this time round despite it being higher in Aug. Average rate is at 2.5%

If you are holding on to Fixed Deposits placed within the last 3 months at 2% or below, it may be worth considering a switch to the banks with 2.7%. This will be worth it if the banks do not impose a penalty fee for breaking and you meet the qualifying minimum deposit.
