You may invest in an IMB Term Deposit with as little as $1,000. Negotiable Interest Term Accounts are available for deposits over $100,000.
Interest is paid 6 monthly and on maturity for terms of 6 months to 5 years. Alternatively you may invest your money for terms of 1 to 12 months and we will pay you interest when your term deposit matures. The interest on your term deposit may be added to your investment, paid into your IMB transaction and savings account or a cheque will be posted to you depending on the initial terms of your investment.
Fortnightly and Monthly Money Plans
These term deposits are designed for our investors who require a regular income. The minimum investment is $2,000 for an IMB fortnightly money plan, and $5,000 for an IMB monthly money plan. Our IMB fortnightly money plan is fixed for 12 months and your interest will be paid every 14 days. If you choose our IMB monthly money plan, interest is paid every 28 days for terms of 3 months to 5 years.
IMB will advise you by mail approximately one week prior to your investment maturing. For most of IMB’s term investment products, you may renew your term deposit for a further term of your choice or withdraw your deposit within 7 days of maturity. For NITA products, you may only withdraw your deposit on the day of maturity. Otherwise, your term deposit will automatically be reinvested for the same term as the maturing deposit and at the standard interest rate applicable to that term on the day the investment matures. If you wish to take advantage of any special rates that IMB may have on offer, you must ensure that you provide IMB these instructions prior to maturity, to avoid your deposit being re-invested at the standard rate.
Although your investment is for a fixed term we understand that sometimes emergencies do arise. Withdrawals may be allowed by IMB but amounts withdrawn before maturity may incur an interest rate reduction of up to 3% p.a for up to 12 months.
