Westpac Notice Saver
The Westpac Notice Saver account is a surplus cash flow solution for wholesale customers designed to bring together a 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 waiting a predetermined notice period.
How it works
The Westpac Notice Saver account requires a minimum opening balance of $500,000 to be deposited within the first 30 days and is opened with either a 31, 60 or 90 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 variable rate of return.
3 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, potentially increasing returns
- Submit up to 10 notices at once - instead of managing multiple term deposits.
The Westpac Notice Saver includes the following features that work to increase your returns:
- Competitive variable interest rates with no minimum or maximum investment amount after the initial $500,000 deposit, so every dollar is working for you
- Interest is calculated daily and paid monthly
- May be suitable for cash investments within a Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) depending on the structure of the SMSF.
