How is interest calculated?
Interest is calculated daily and is paid:
Annual interest accounts:
Interest is calculated daily and paid annually on the anniversary of the deposits account opening and being funded and on maturity. Interest can be added to your selected savings product or paid into your nominated bank or building society current account.
Monthly interest accounts:
Interest is calculated daily and paid monthly into your selected savings product or paid into your nominated bank or building society current account and on maturity.
Can Masthaven Bank change the interest rate?
No, the interest rate is fixed for the duration of your fixed rate bond.
Can I withdraw money?
No. To enjoy the fixed rate you must not take money out before the end of the fixed term of your chosen product.
Within a reasonable period of time before the maturity date of your account, we will provide you with the options available to you through the online account manager.
We can return funds to your nominated bank account or help you to invest in other products with Masthaven Bank. If you do not indicate to us what you would like us to do with your funds by the maturity date, or if we are unable to follow your instructions to transfer the funds to your nominated account because, for instance, it has been closed, your account will automatically become a Masthaven Bank instant savings account.

Annual Equivalent Rate (AER)
