How to open a CIMB Fixed Deposit Account?

Visit your nearest branch of CIMB along with the required documents and deposit amount. A bank staff will help you to open a fixed deposit account.

How does CIMB Bank Fixed Deposit Work?

Consider that you have deposited RM10,000 in an Unfixed Deposit Account for a period of 60 months. The interest rate applicable is 3.65% p.a. Consider that you do not uplift money from the account for the entire deposit tenure. The interest you earn on the deposit is calculated below.

I = [A x {1 + (R/100)T}] – A

I = [RM10,000 x {1 + (3.65/100)60/12}] – RM10,000

I = RM1,825

The total interest you earn from the deposit is RM1,825. The interest you earn will vary if you uplift the money during the tenure.

News About CIMB Fixed Deposits in Malaysia

  • CIMB Bank Increased Rates After OPR Hike

    Both CIMB Bank Berhad and CIMB Islamic Bank Berhad have increased their Base Rates and Fixed Deposit Rates by 0.25% just like many other banks in Malaysia have done following the Overnight Policy Rate (OPR) hike.

    According to CIMB Equities Research, the hike can be a positive change for banks as it will help to grow their margins. The research firm also pointed out that the corporate Malaysia market can easily handle the 25 basis points OPR hike given that the net gearing of the market is about 24.6%, and the positive impact from the banks’ earnings is enough to counterbalance the negative impact on the many sectors like agribusiness, automotive, healthcare, consumer etc.
