There’s no greater idea than saving money, and or investing your capital for a specified period of time. The world as we know it is full of surprises and may leave you stranded when you least expect it.  Absa will always give you a number of options to help you save money and protect yourself from unforeseen circumstances when you need money.

You can open an Absa Fixed Deposit Account and invest your money from 8 days to 5 years, and the longer you invest, the more interest you’ll earn, and thus it’s always worth it. You have goals to achieve – 5 years ago compared to your present moment what has changed? I am sure a lot has happened, but financially have you made necessary adjustments and decisions? Well, for as long as there’s breath pumping through your lungs, it is never too late to start making the right decision and choose an investment plan that will best work for you.

Believe me, when I say, your goals are achievable no matter how bigger of a dreamer you are. Get higher fixed interest for your entire term of investment when you invest for a longer period. You may choose if you want your interest to be paid on the maturity date (End of your investment period), each month, quarterly, annually or half-yearly.
