ING DIRECT launches innovative “pick a date” option on Term Deposits

Published on 14/03/2011

ING DIRECT is giving customers the option to pick the maturity date of their Term Deposit at any time, online – a welcome innovation in the booming Term Deposit market.

The personal TD market has been growing rapidly, increasing by 112% since 2007, a growth of $114 billion (CANSTAR CANNEX), and makes up the largest portion (44%) of the personal deposit market.

ING DIRECT’s Brett Morgan says, “We see this as a simple way of improving an already popular product to better fit the needs of our customers by allowing them to tailor the terms to suit their unique financial circumstances.

“The benefits of a term deposit are obvious – earning a great rate of interest on money which is locked away – however often people are constrained by the terms placed on them by their provider,” he says.

Other features of an ING DIRECT Term Deposit include:
•    The option to receive the interest earned at the end of the term and renew the original term deposit amount.
•    Earn a Loyalty Bonus when you renew your term deposit to the same or a different term

New and existing customers can choose any maturity date beyond a minimum term of 30 days and within a maximum term of 365 days.
