Features in detail

Your interest compounds daily*

It's not often you get a low risk investment where your interest compounds daily as opposed to monthly. The effect of this is an even higher effective interest rate.

Auto investment - set and forget

One of the best ways to make the most of the Cash Advantage Fund is to set up a 'Regular Investor Plan'.

This is a great way to keep your savings goals on track and once it is set up you don't need to worry about it.

Pay tax annually or on sales of units

Another unique tax benefit is that you pay tax annually. Unlike traditional deposit products where tax is paid monthly when interest is earned.

Tax is automatically deducted from your account at the end of the tax year or during the year when you sell units.

Instant access to the Term Advantage Fund

The Term Advantage Fund is a Term Deposit version of the Cash Advantage Fund. It offers 3, 6 and 12 month terms and competitive rates.

*Our daily compounding interest works like this - Interest on Fund's deposited compounds daily on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. On Monday, three days' interest compounds (for Saturday, Sunday and Monday).
