Forget Fixed Deposits, your money deserves better!

Time to grow your savings wisely, all on one page! You will thank me later.

Why You Are Here

Hello visitor! Perhaps you landed on this page after searching on Google or some other search engines *shudders* on finding better FD, or fixed deposits alternatives to park your money at.

Let me be very honest here. Without a doubt, FDs just make us want to pull our hair out because of these THREE reasons:

  1. Good rates tend to last for short or seasonal periods

  2. We need fresh funds (not talking virgin money, rather transferring them from another bank)

  3. We have to lock them up for extended periods; 3 months, 6 months, 12 months! *gasp*

See no touch, you need the funds for emergencies or pay the bills? Oops, whatever interests you earned goes poof! 🙈

Thanks to the Internet, I decided to stick with these FIVE (5) simpler alternatives where you can potentially earn better rates (average of 4%* APR) and withdraw in just a few business days. And deposit from as low as RM10!

Best of all, they are regulated by the Securities Commission (SC) of Malaysia and Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM). Also, one of them is insured by Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia (PIDM)!

* Rates are subject to change based on projections and portfolios selected with low, moderate or high risk exposures. Annual, trustee or management fees may be factored in as well.
