Term Deposits update – five banks now on board

Heartland Bank Term Deposits are the latest to be added to the suite of term deposits on InvestNow.  Investors can now invest in term deposits from ANZ, BNZ, Heartland, CCB and SBS Bank.

Using InvestNow, you don’t need to have a bank account at one of these five banks to have a term deposit with them.  You can choose term deposits from any one of them, switch your money between the banks when you want, all without the need to visit the bank again.  Gone are the days where investors need to open an account with every bank in town in order to get the best term deposit rate.  With an InvestNow account investors can manage their term deposit investments all in one place and switch their money between banks.  Easy!

If that wasn’t enough of a reason, the term deposit rates on InvestNow, when compared to the high-street rates on Interest.co.nz for the major banks, are compelling.
