Updated 17 Sep 2019 – By MARTIJN BOUDEWIJN


Are you interested in the latest Fixed Deposit Promos in Malaysia? Want to get the most out of your hard-earned money? Well then, this article is for you. Here's the list of the most recent Fixed Deposit promotions. 

To those who are not sure about Fixed Deposit, it's a type of an investments account that allows you to invest a lump of money for a fixed time period and at a fixed rate of interest. This type of investment is quite popular because it's known to be risk-free and has higher interest rates when compared to the regular savings account. This is because it's calculated on a yearly basis, unlike a savings account which is calculated on a daily basis. The tenure of the fixed deposit account can also affect the interest rate - the longer the tenure, the higher the interest rate is given. 

Now, let’s take a look at the list (in no particular order).
