Frequently asked questions

  • 1. How does a savings account work

    An individual deposits capital into a savings account at a bank or financial institution for an agreed-upon time period and at an agreed-upon interest rate. At the end of the agreed-upon period, the capital and interest earned can be withdrawn or re-invested.

  • 2. Does your money grow in a savings account

    Yes, there is potential for growth depending on the agreed-upon interest rate, time period, and initial capital amount deposited.

  • 3. How is savings account interest calculated?

    To calculate the interest you can earn on your savings account, multiply your savings balance by the interest over the savings period. Interest can be compounded daily, monthly or over the fixed term of your investment.

  • 4. Can you withdraw money from a savings account

    Yes. If you withdraw money from your savings account after your chosen notice period you should not incur any penalty fees. However, if you choose to withdraw money before your notice period ends, you may be charged a penalty fee.

  • 5. Are savings accounts taxable?

    You can save money in a tax-free savings account (TFSA) and get exceptional returns over a 12-month fixed term.
