ASB term deposit rates are located here.  What I can't understand is in the 10k-50k range, the 6 month and 9 month periods have the highest return.  Wouldn't the bank want to hold on to your money for as long as possible, so the 12 month and 18 month should be the highest??

Maybe over the longer terms the number of clients just isnt there, and they are focussing on the reality of where the revenue actually is (In what is probably a reasonably competitive space), rather than where they would like it to be... ?

More likely its just that they expect interest rates to start dropping in the next 12 months.....

Bingo filterer. Those rates are terrible however. Kiwibank will give you 8.3% on their completely accessible online savings account. If you want to go term, there are far better options.

Yes, it depends on what they expect interest rates to do over that period. They don't want to be paying you high interest rates in 12 months time if they are only lending that cash back out at low rates.

I fully agree, the majority of my savings are with RaboPlus - I'm certainly not doing this by choice, but for personal reasons have to put up with lower rates from ASB.

Couldn't it just be a simple reason such as... higher interest rate + longer period of time = more that bank has to pay out?

Ahh dude, the banks WANT your money, the more money and the longer for the better, they certainly aren't concerned about the total cost of using your money for a while, just how much money they can make per $1 of your money
