i did not see the details, but i suspect its another one of those crappy products with a lot of terms and conditions. end of the day, you will be better off with a plain vanilla FD..

Seems like rates are going up. But can all banks learn to be like CIMB? So we can open our FD online, makes it so simple and convenient. Really hate to queue and wait for an account

Shorter better if expectation is rates will rise. So u can reinvest at a better rate in 8 months time.

That's better than 1.65% that I got for 6 months FD in CIMB. But CIMB min is $20k only.
