Term Deposits

The CBA Deposit accounts are designed to offer maximum return on your investment. In addition they also offer you flexible investment periods and interest is paid upon maturity or at specific periods of the year. We offer you choice to invest in local and designated foreign currencies.

Two investment options:

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 after seven days. With the Call Deposit you may invest a minimum of Kes 10,000,000 for a period of 7days onwards. You may make partial withdrawals without notice as long as the balance does not go below the minimum amount after the seven day period. No Interest will be paid on a call deposit withdrawn before 7 days.

The Time Deposit Account offers a high-yield return and allows you to determine how long you want to invest. Minimum amount you may invest in time deposit is Kes 500,000 for both retail and corporate customers. You may choose to invest for durations between 1-12 months with an option to rollover the principal amount on the expiry of the period. What`s more, you get interest paid upon maturity or at designated intervals - at a market rate. No Interest will be paid on partial or full withdrawal of the fixed deposit before the maturity date.

For foreign currencies the minimum amount for both retail and corporate customers is either USD 10,000 or Euro 10,000 or GBP 10,000. The terms above for call or fixed deposit will apply on foreign currency deposits as well.
