1. Start saving now without having to wait

Are you currently waiting for several things to happen in order to start putting your money into a savings account? For instance, you might be waiting to have enough money to open a savings account, or you already have enough money but do not have free time to visit your bank to open a savings account. With Timo Term Deposit, you do not have to go to the bank as every step and procedure can be done in minutes right in the Timo app. Additionally, Timo’s Term Deposit offers the following convenient features:

  • Low minimum requirement – 1.000.000 VND
  • Competitive interest rates – up to 7.6%/year

Start saving whenever you have money without having to wait, as a Term Deposit can be opened in the Timo app in a few swipes and taps

  • Important notes:
    From 5th July 2019, foreigners with a valid document proving residential status in Vietnam with at least 6 months validity will be eligible to open Term Deposit Accounts with a Term NOT greater than the remaining of its validity. Existing Term Deposits opened before 5th July 2019 will be continued until its maturity.

Before opening a savings account to earn interest, a lot of people hesitate as they are concerned that they will lose a fair amount of interest if an urgent matter comes up and they end up having to withdraw their money ahead of time. If this is your concern, Timo would be a perfect option as we have a way to help you minimize the loss of interest in these situations.

2/ How to minimize losses of early withdrawal with Timo Term Deposit?

The highest possible interest rate does not always mean that it would help you to generate the largest amount of interest. In an unexpected situation that requires you to withdraw money ahead of time, the higher the interest rate, the higher the amount of interest you would lose. This is why Timo’s Term Deposit is designed to help you avoid losing a large amount of interest by making the smart suggestion of splitting their total savings amount into smaller accounts. This can be done instantly and quickly when you open a Term Deposit in the Timo app. Once you open a Term Deposit, depending on the amount of money you wish to save, Timo will suggest that you either open 1 account or split it into 4 accounts. If you choose the option of splitting it into 4 Term Deposits, you can easily withdraw 1 in case of an emergency and continue to earn interest on the remaining 3 Term Deposits. With this feature of our Term Deposit, Timo account holders do not need to worry that they would lose all of their interest if they are in a situation where they need to withdraw some of their savings.

However, be advised that early withdrawal is not always encouraged as the best way to maximize your interest is not to withdraw any of your Term Deposits ahead of time.

3/ Unlimited number of Term Deposits is allowed

Hopefully this article will help you to generate interest from your savings, even with a small amount, as well as let you discover how to split your savings account so you would not lose all of your interest in unexpected situations.

Do keep in mind that just as Timo’s Term Deposit encourages users to hold several small accounts, the number of Term Deposits you can open in the Timo app is not restricted. No matter how many Term Deposits you have already opened, you can still easily have another Term Deposit at only 1.000.000 VND.
