Top term deposit rates: October 2022

Term deposit rates are rising faster than high interest savings accounts rates right now, causing fixed deposit rates to hit highs not seen in years and fuelling a surge in consumer demand.

Mozo’s bank expert Peter Marshall says that as banks increase term deposit rates in line with predicted RBA rate hikes, term deposits are likely to offer higher interest rates than at-call savings accounts for the time being.

Judo Bank, AMP and Macquarie Bank are leading the charge with some of the highest term deposit rates in the Mozo database. All three currently offer 1-year rates above 4.00%., while AMP is offering 4.55% p.a. for a 2-year term. Read on for our round-up of some of the top rates on offer.
