Where Can I Save My Money?

You can save your money in either regular current or savings deposit accounts or fixed deposit accounts in Singapore. Fixed deposit accounts in Singapore offer a higher interest rate as compared to your basic savings deposit account although the difference has become smaller as fixed deposit interest rates plummeted ever since COVID-19 started. Rates have most likely bottomed out and have stabilised at a low rate. There are even some encouraging signs that rates could rise soon as the economy improves.

Contrary to belief that certain foreign banks might be more risky, the first $75,000 parked in fixed deposits at any bank is risk-free. This is due to the fact that the Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation (linked to the Singapore government) insures all deposits in any individual bank or finance company operating in Singapore for a sum of up to $75,000.

Consumer banks or finance companies operating in Singapore are also subjected to strict capital requirements well above global standards to protect depositors. Fixed deposits are hence considered very low risk financial products although the returns might be unexciting compared to other investment products.

 

Fixed Deposit Minimum Amount and Minimum Period

The minimum amount and period for fixed deposits differs from bank to bank. As a rule of the thumb, banks or financial companies reward depositors with higher interest for longer tenures and higher deposit amounts. They frequently conduct fixed deposit promotions for certain tenures and deposit amounts to attract fresh funds so as to boast their deposit base. These limited time promotions are usually extremely competitive and might or might not be renewed upon expiry. Sometimes, promotional gifts are offered if certain minimum deposit amount is met.

For a fair comparison of fixed deposit rates (including promotional and non-promotional rates) in Singapore, we have included the comparison table below for reference. The fixed deposit interest rates are based on popular tenures of between 6 to 18 months and fresh funds of $75,000 (Risk-free since insured by SDIC). Rates are based on the assumption of new fresh funds deposit and a depositor doesn't have any privilege or preferred relationship with the bank.  We have also include the current Money Lobang Average Fixed Deposit Rates and latest one year returns for Singapore Savings Bonds (Risk-free bonds by Singapore government) so as to facilitate comparison for depositors.
