Term deposit - what it is?
A term deposit is the process of keeping a specific amount of money in a financial institution for an agreed period of time. The institution pays interest for the time they hold the money. The amount of interest and the payout frequency are determined on the day of signing the deposit contract. Remember that term deposits cannot be terminated until the agreed period of time passes, and no interest will be paid upon early termination.
A term deposit is one of the most reliable ways to generate passive income and to get your money that you set aside for saving working for you. Since the interest rate is agreed in advance, any financial institution is committed to it for the agreed period. This way, your money doesn’t lose value due to inflation or other market changes.

Term deposit - what is it?
Term deposit is a financial tool that allows you to keep a specific amount of money in a bank or other financial institution for an agreed period of time, for which the bank or other financial institution pays interest.
This is one of the most stable ways to get passive income and get your money working for you. With term deposits, your money won’t lose so much value due to inflation or other market changes. Irrevocable term deposit can only be cancelled and taken out before term under special circumstances.

What is the difference between an irrevocable term deposit and a savings account?
A savings account is a term deposit that can be topped up whenever you want. During the next agreed period for depositing (or withdrawing) money, interest is recalculated based on the new amount. If you want to close the savings account, you will be paid all the accrued interest and the deposited amount. However, interest on a savings account will never reach the level that a term deposit can offer.
Saldo cannot offer savings account services at this time.
