A few things before getting started
What is the product?
This is a 5 year Fixed Term Deposit, operated under Shariah principles. This means that interest cannot be earned, only profit.
What does this mean for my money?
The profit we share with you is the 'expected profit rate' we offer at the time you open your account. We monitor your account on a daily basis to ensure the expected profit rate will be achieved. If we believe the expected profit rate will not be achieved, we will contact you giving you notice of the new expected profit rate. You will then have the option to continue your account with us at the new rate, or close your account immediately with your original deposit returned, along with profit earned. To date, we have always generated and paid our customers the expected profit rate.
