Benefits

Online convenience

Set up your term deposit online today.

Consider your options

Lock in a fixed rate for a range of periods from one month to five years.

Start small

Invest from as little as $1,000 up to $5,000,000.

How it works

Choose a term that suits you, and set up your term deposit online. Then transfer your chosen amount (minimum $1,000) from your linked bank account into your term deposit. Your linked account can be with Bankwest or another financial institution.

Once your term deposit matures, you have seven days' grace period to decide whether you want to withdraw your funds or reinvest them. If you do nothing by the end of your grace period, your funds will be automatically reinvested at the same term at the rate applicable at the time of maturity.

Changes aimed at strengthening the banking system mean we require 31 days' notice if you want to withdraw your funds before the maturity date. This can also affect the interest that we pay you. You can still access your money at maturity and during the grace period.
