The Global Performance Term Deposit combines the security of a term deposit with the growth potential of the stock market, all without risking your principal investment. Like standard term deposits, you're guaranteed the full amount of your deposit at maturity.

However, unlike standard term deposits, the actual rate of return is dependent on the cumulative 5-year performance of a reference portfolio, comprised of 20 "name brand" global companies, each weighted at 5%. At maturity, the cumulative performance of the reference portfolio is calculated by applying a set multiplier to the reference portfolio’s return (up to the defined maximum).


  • Opportunity to participate in the growth potential of well-known international corporations
  • No risk to the investment principal
  • Potential for greater returns than traditional term deposits
  • Higher potential return when market performance is weaker
  • No commissions or management fees
  • Low minimum deposit ($500)
  • Term length of 5 years; non-redeemable
  • Interest is compounded annually; paid at maturity
  • Monthly online updates track performance
  • Deposits are 100% guaranteed*

How the rate of return is determined

As shown in the table below, as the performance of the reference portfolio varies, so does your rate of return – up to the maximum rates indicated.
