Saxo introduces new interest rate model that lets clients earn interest on uninvested cash with no lock-in period

Saxo Capital Markets Pte. Ltd. (“Saxo”) has introduced a new, innovative interest rate model that allows clients to earn interest income on their uninvested cash with no lock-in period or upper limit on amount paid. This applies to both existing and new funds.

With this new interest rate model, interest rate on clients’ deposits are updated on a daily basis based on market conditions, which means adjustments to central bank policy are reflected accordingly. Saxo’s clients will now see their deposit interest rate increase to reflect when the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) or Federal Reserve, for instance, raises its interest rate.

This is part of Saxo’s commitment to be the trusted trading and investment partner for our clients, as Saxo’s platforms and broad access across asset classes and wealth solutions let clients trade through all macroeconomic cycles.

The deposit interest rate for retail investors has historically lagged behind market rates, but that is now a thing of the past. With the new interest model Saxo’s clients get a more dynamic and transparent model that follows the market developments every single day.

Saxo clients can use the interactive interest calculator to estimate the total interest received on their uninvested cash depending on deposit amount and currency.

Richard Douglas, CEO, Saxo Hong Kong says: “We are thrilled to be able to bring this new interest rate model to our clients, as it fully reflects our commitment to help our clients make more of their money. Our clients will get generous interest rates, across a variety of currencies, and those interest rates will increase as they deposit more funds.

Saxo is here to get curious people invested in the world, and we hope with this, we make it easier for clients to stay invested, and we make it more transparent when and why their rate changes.”

What clients can get with the new interest rate model:

  • No lock-in period. Clients do not have to tie up their funds to benefit from the new interest model. The interest received follows the market rate without binding client funds for a certain period.
  • Get higher interest with larger deposits. Starting from account balance above USD 10,000, clients will receive a variable interest rate, scaled proportionally with the deposit amount. The larger deposit clients have on their account, the closer they get to the HKMA interest rate.
  • No upper limits: With Saxo, there is no upper limit on the level of deposit which clients can earn interest on.
  • Earn interest on different currencies. The interest rate model applies to all deposits in GBP, Euro and US dollars.
