Frequently asked questions

  • 1. What is a fixed savings account?

    A fixed savings account is an account where you lock your funds away for a predetermined period of time. The interest rate you will earn will be based on the time period agreed. The time period can range from 1 month to five years. For an Investec Fixed Savings Account, you need to deposit a minimum of R100,000 to open this account.   

    Should you wish to withdraw funds before the maturity date you may incur penalty fees.

  • 2. How does a fixed savings account work?

    A savings account where you lock your funds away for an agreed period of time is called a fixed savings account. The interest rate is established and locked in until the end of the fixed investment period (e.g., 12 months, 24 months, or 60 months) after the capital amount has been invested.
