Earn a high level of profit putting your money away for the fixed term.
Our 18 month Fixed Term Deposit Saving Account is designed to give you a relatively high expected profit on your savings over a fixed period of time.
If you wish to save for the future, our 18 month Fixed Term Deposit Account gives you the option of reinvesting your profit and watching your money grow, or you can take a quarterly Sharia compliant return on your savings.
