1.8% for priority 5mths, but looks like capped at 100k.
Anyone has issue browsing SCB website on mobile? Keeps shutting down on me. Other websites ok

Being able to open FD online is so much more convenient. SC can and should do better in this area when CIMB is able to do so already.

I think this will affect those with home loans pegged to fixed deposit rates...

Liquidity appears to be tightening (= higher rates) and it should continue to tighten unless MAS changes its mind about the S$NEER.

No choice, many banks are offering higher rates for fd and SSB rates are very competitive now, DBS got to up rates to attract deposits.

Its a great time to have no debt and a lot of cash.
