I applied for RHB 4.1% FD online under Joint Account (with wife) last saturday. It requires 1 working day to be approved. It was approved this afternoon.

I want to apply another FD Joint (with wife) online, but it don't allow bcos the 'Joint applicant (ID) already has this FD account'. I then called the hotline for clarification. Apparently for online, can only apply once with the Joint Applicant, if want more, go down to the branch, really dumb. Anyway, the CSO has raised a request to allow me to apply for multiple FDs with the same Joint applicant online...have to wait if this will be approved or not.

Edit : Update. The RHB CSO is very responsive. Called me quickly to answer my questions.
Apparently you can apply fr multiple placements under the same Joint Account online anytime, just that i select the wrong button. i blur.

In case one party die, the other can get access to it easier/faster.
This make sense if the amount you put is a lot. You and wife putting a lot? For me no joint account for me as I dun want my monies so easily let ppl take and spend once I die

As of now ppl going for 1 month ICBC 3.6%. 3 month ICBC 3.9%. 6 month BOC 4.0% or CIMB 4.0%. 9 month CIMB 4.05,4.10% or BOC 4.0%. 12 month RHB go Cecil branch 4.28%. Sing Investment CNY promo 4.23%. CIMB 4.15,4.20%. RHB mobile app 4.10%

That means RHB has the best rate as of now - 4.28%. Thanks for sharing.

Hi all, for the 4.28 RHB Cecil branch promotion, do we need to transfer the existing fund from RHB account for the FD - so that it is fresh fund?

Thanks in advance.

RHB 4.28% for 12 months is a promo, only at the cecil branch
For online or at other branches, 4.1% for 12 months and 24 months are available

Apparently you can apply fr multiple placements under the same Joint Account online anytime, just that i select the wrong button. i blur.
Did they send you an email to confirm successful placement of the 24 months FD? And wonder if rhb will send a letter to confirm placement?

It makes no sense to make ppl come from all over Sg to this particular branch.It will be wiser to open up to all branches as the outreach to customers is wider.Many elderlies around here and you dun expect them to buy other products if that is what they are targeting.
Elderly only go for reputable banks. The elderly here are a special breed cannot use as common ref
