Hi all, I have a question regarding moving funds between esaver and Isavvy. Their cycles are not aligned. So the previous daily balance is not reset yet when I move the fund in. How do you guys deal with it ? Thanks a lot.

ICBC has 1.95-1.98 which is pretty close to 2%.

Stanchart E-saver promo .... 1.9% pa above 50K and 2% pa for fresh deposits above 200K ... 2% pa applicable only from 1-Apr to 31-May.

Best thing about this promo being you still enjoy the flexibility of a savings account i.e. you are not locked in and withdraw your funds any time without any penalty.

Yes. Go to branch to open savings account. FD you can also open there or place online later using internet banking for higher rate. Next time can fast transfer in and place FD without going down.

Yes, they open an FD account place holder for you at the branch. Then you can place individual FDs inside that FD account, online.

It took me about 2 hrs for the account opening. It is a very slow process.

Actually Maybank has the most. I think about 500m. They were the only secured bank against Tuaspring and considered safe until PUB announced takeover at zero. But Maybank is more established and larger than the 1 branch Bangkok Bank.

Is your FD amount below SDIC 75k ? Why take the risk ?
Takeover at zero?
No rule of law in SG?
Like that is damn lucrative kind of doing business leh
Or some sort of fraud in action?
Why always this kind of news sure to involve DBS Bank ar?
Last time the Lehman mini bonds failure they were also a big player
How about that oil & gas player Swiber ?
This time round, also is DBS Bank again
Jin jialat leh .... the best bank in Asia some more..

Actually best not to place at all if there may be potential issues. SDIC claim has never taken place before....touch wood. No one knows how it works eg the process and how long it takes to get back the money. Someone mention ICBC 1.98%. Not worth the risk and worry for that little bit more interest.
It is funny how do you know there are no potential problems hidden from the public regarding the ICBC Industrial and Commercial Bank of China?

From what I have gathered the Chinese Communist Goverments are even more secretive than the CIA or communist Russia in hiding any potential financial problems.

Given the economies of Thailand or China, why wouldn't I choose Bangkok Bank over Industrial and Commercial Bank of China?
