Did You Know:
Is there a Notice Period to Access Term Deposits Early?
Yes, there is! Since the beginning of 2015 under the Basel III liquidity standards, banks introduced a 31 day notice periods on term deposit investments these are part of the bank’s liquidity coverage ratio to help improve financial institutions’ ability to withstand stress (a rush on funds by customers).
These rules also affect Farm Management Deposits (FMDs).
There are exceptions to the new rules, for example “if a customer is experiencing financial hardship.”
There are also early exit fees.
All the best from the Watts Price Team!
