Mozo Review   Bank of Queensland Premier Investment Review

Last updated: 10 October 2019.

What's hot:
  • No ongoing fees

  • Interest can be paid to an account with a different bank

What's not:
  • Automatic rollover at maturity

Mozo snapshot:

The Bank of Queensland Premier Investment term deposit has rates on offer for terms from 1 month through to 5 years. It has no account maintenance or transaction fees so you can lock your money away knowing that all the interest you earn is yours to keep (or reinvest) and it is not being eaten away fees.

Key features:

The Bank of Queensland Premier Investment account comes with a wide range of terms to choose from starting from 28 days and up to 5 years. You can invest in a Bank of Queensland Premier term deposit from as little as $1,000 but the best rates are for investments of $5,000 and over. 

BOQ's top term deposit rate is 1.55% on a term of 6 months. Keep in mind these rates are only available for deposit amounts from $5,000 to $250,000.

Interest is calculated daily and paid at the end of your investment term or annually if you have a term longer than 12 months. You can also choose to have it paid either into your Bank of Queensland account, or into an account with another bank.

There is a $30 early payout fee and an interest adjustment if you withdraw your funds early, plus you'll need to give 31 days notice.

Who it's good for:

The Bank of Queensland Premier term deposit is best for savers with at least $5,000 to lock away, otherwise, the interest rates are not too hot. If you're a BOQ Home Loan Privileges Package customer or a Bank of Queensland share holder you'll receive a 0.25% bonus interest rate in addition to the standard term deposit rates.

Any catches?

The Premier Investment term deposit has an automatic rollover, which means that you really need to make sure you keep a close watch on that rollover date otherwise you could find you've been locked into a new fixed term with a less competitive rate than what's on offer out in the market.

    Interest rates have always been up front and competitive with the big banks in our area. The interest has always been processed on time and reinvestment plans are always notified in writing with plenty of time to plan our next move.

    Tried 8 banks and credit providers and by far the best was BOQ. The money we invested with them was .6% better and flexible with interest payable monthly which is essential to our everyday living costs as self funded retiree's. Great stuff!
