Investments

Fixed deposit

Our CBA Deposit Accounts are designed to offer maximum return on investment. They offer flexible investment periods with interest that is paid upon maturity or at predetermined times of the year. We give you the choice of investing in both local and designated foreign currencies.  

The Call Deposit Account is ideal for the saver who wants to earn high interest over a short term and still have funds to use as needed. With the Call Deposit you may invest for a minimum period of 48 hours (2 days) onwards. You may make partial withdrawals from your deposit account subject to a 24 hour notice period. In addition, the principal, plus interest, is paid upon notice of withdrawal.

The Time Deposit Account offers a high-yield return and allows you to determine how long you want to invest. You may choose to invest for 1-12 months with the option to roll the account over after that time. With this option you get interest paid upon maturity or at designated intervals (at a market rate).

How much do I need to start? 
The minimum deposit amount for local currency is KShs. 100,000 / USD 10,000 or the equivalent in foreign currency.
