Types of Maybank Islamic Fixed Deposits
Maybank offers the following types of Islamic Fixed Deposits to its customers:
- Islamic Fixed Deposit-i (IFD-i): IFD-i is one of the Islamic fixed deposit schemes offered by Maybank. The minimum initial deposit amount is RM5,000 for a tenure of one month. The minimum initial deposit amount is RM1,000 for any deposit tenure ranging from two months to 5 years. The deposit is insured by PIDM (Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia).
- Prosperous Now! Account-i (PNA-i): PNA-i is another Islamic fixed deposit scheme that instantly adds profit to the customer’s account as soon as they sign up. PNA-i has a defined minimum deposit of RM10,000 in order to open the account. Once the deposit matures, the account holder can withdraw the cash. The deposit amount is protected by PIDM.
Features and Benefits
