The ’5-Year Term Deposit: Interest in Advance’ has competitive interest rates and allows the amount to be credited to the linked savings or current account.
In addition to accepting deposits made by cash, cheque or direct account transfer, the ’5-Year Term Deposit: Interest in Advance’ allows clients to easily manage their account 24/7 via ABK online platform, mobile banking application, SMS, or automated telephone banking services from the comfort of their homes.
