About the Deposit Market
A quick background on term deposits and interest rates in Australia. I promise, I will keep it short.
There are more than 140 banks in Australia. Yes… It sounds crazy, but its true!
Each bank sets their own interest rates depending on many factors
As a saver, you would get different interest rates from different banks on your money
The Australian Government provides a guarantee of up to $250,000 for your money invested in almost all Australian Bank.
Since 2009, interest rates on savings and deposits have declined significantly and is now almost less than inflation, meaning unless you hunt down better interest rates, you are essentially losing capital, let alone interest.!
All this means is that interest you earn on your savings can differ quite considerably. Often by as much as 50%. Yes – I can hear you saying that it’s an ordeal to search for and find these rates. It’s a headache to keep up to date with all the changes in the market. It is much simpler to just keep it all with your current Bank. That is perfectly OK. You may however be losing a significant amount of interest. And when you compound this interest you are essentially foregoing year after year, it would add up to a quite a sum. Albert Einstein is said to have called “the power of compound interest the most powerful force in the universe.” So to get to the point.
