Judo Bank cuts and raises term deposit rates: How high are deposit rates now?
Judo Bank has boosted interest rates across a range of its term deposits, going against current market trends.
Judo, one of Australia's newest banks, increased various term deposit rates by up to 8 basis points this week, including the rate of its one-year personal term deposit which now has an interest rate of 1.38% p.a.
However, Judo also cut various other rates by up to 10 basis points, such as the five year personal term deposit which fell from 1.50% p.a. to 1.40% p.a.
These changes come at a time when more than 30 different banks have slashed term deposit rates during August, some by as much as 90 basis points.
