    Hi doing a bit of research and wondered if you could help
    I would like to know the interest rate of 2010 of a 3 year fixed term of $100,000

      Hello Marlene,
      thanks for the question.

      This is a difficult question to answer because during this year rates moved around, and at that time not every lender offered 3 month fixing terms. To give you an idea of what rates would’ve been like in August 2010, there were rates of 5.40% from CBA for sums up to $500,000 and NAB had rates of 5.80% for 6 months.

      I hope this helps,

      The government guarantee covers you for up to $250,000 per account per institution.

    can the interest on these fixed terms be rolled back into the account to avoid tax until such time you cash in the deposit

      No, this isn’t possible.

      Cheers, Adrian.

      Hi Shelly. UBank is a division of NAB and is covered under NAB’s government guarantee on deposits of $250,000 per person.

      Cheers, Adrian.
