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 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.

A big difference between a term deposit account and a savings account is the fixed term and a fixed interest rate.

A fixed interest rate means that you are guaranteed a specific return on your savings at the end of your deposit and the interest rate will not fluctuate. For savings accounts the interest rates are not fixed and can fluctuate based on the market.

Term deposits also offer higher interest rates in general than savings accounts, since you commit to keep your money on the account for a longer period.

Yes, all term deposits up to €100,000 per person are insured. Note that the limit is per person and not per term deposit agreement.

The shortest term of the term deposit is 6 months, the longest is 60 months.
