Mozo snapshot

If you’re looking for a competitive return on your savings, newcomer Judo Bank's term deposit is worth considering. Whether you’re looking to lock away your funds for three months or five years, your investment will earn interest at some of the most competitive rates in the market right now. You will also get the same protections as other Australian banks as eligible deposits of up to $250,000 with Judo Bank are covered under the Australian Government Deposit Claims Scheme. 

It's perhaps little surprise then that the Judo Bank Term Deposit took out a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award in the best Term Deposit category.

  • 0.82% for a 3 month term

  • 0.89% for a 6 month term

  • 0.99% for a one year term

On top of the these rates, savers will also earn a 0.10% loyalty bonus on top of the standard rate if you choose to reinvest your balance in another term deposit once it’s reached maturity.

You’ll also be able to have interest paid when it suits you best - either monthly, yearly or at maturity. And unlike many other term deposits, the Judo Bank Term Deposit allows you to have your interest paid to another bank. 

Just keep in mind that if you do wish to withdraw your funds before the maturity date, you will need to provide Judo Bank with 31 days notice and your interest may be reduced.
