Westpac Notice Saver
The Westpac Notice Saver accounts are an innovative new surplus cash flow solution for wholesale customers designed to bring together a competitive, variable rate of interest with your choice of notice period. You can add funds to your account at any time to increase your rate of return, whilst having the option to withdraw some or all of your funds after serving a predetermined notice period.
How it works
The Westpac Notice Saver account requires a minimum opening balance of $500,000 and is opened with either a 31, 60, 90 or 180 day notice period. At the end of your notice period, you have the option of withdrawing some or all of your funds. Interest is calculated daily and paid monthly. You can deposit funds to your account at any time to ensure you earn a competitive variable rate of return.
4 account types, based on different cash flows needs
- Choose the notice period account that best meets your surplus cash flow
- Top up Funds on Hold balances at any time increasing returns
- Submit up to 10 notices at once - instead of managing multiple term deposits
- Competitive variable interest rates
The Westpac Notice Saver includes the following features that work to increase your returns:
