Safe Or Not?

This evening I was told by my friend that a well established bank is offering 6.8% per annum on deposits from RM65,000.00 onwards.

I also got to know that this amount of money cannot be taken out for at least seven years. 7 years, no joke, cannot touch the money, otherwise you will lose some of the capital... but if left untouched, you will receive the dividend returns of 6.8% every quarterly. They will credit the money into your savings account.

Good deal or not? Any financial consultant to advise over here? Secured or not if put for 7 years in this type of proposal or not?

  1. Sorry can't advice on this, as I'm not that experienced in money matters.

    But imho, isn't amanah saham nasional /wawasan/etc better? Just wait for them to open up, then dump in the excess cash.

  2. Sorry, not in the position to give advice.
    This is a difficult decision to make because 7 years is rather long. The longer the riskier...

  8. Horrible deal!!! That's a huge chunk of your life! The only reason to do it is if it's money you know you are never going to need. What if you need a new car, or some kind of disaster and you need money? This might be good if you have lots of money elsewhere.

  10. Deposits? Not the usual fixed deposits, I'm sure.

    One of those trust funds - they say if it's with a bank, no problem. The only thing is if their investments do not make money, you may not get any interest. But at least, you will get your principal sum back.

    I don't have any money in this...so scared, don't dare to take risks - that's why will never be rich!

  12. 6.8% only! Not worth it! Now the share market went down, better buy some good stock to keep. You can cash out whenever you like rather than being locked up for 7 years!

  15. i'm no financial expert..it really depends whether you are willing to have that amount of money untouched for 7 years..that's a very good interest..guaranteed return?

  16. NEVER EVER BELIEVE ANY bank(s) or any financial companies. Just believe my words. They are doing gimmick business. So long don be hungry for such luring words. They can come out in other ways after 7 years!

    How many bankers are sincere in their words?
