Saxo introduces new interest rate model that lets clients earn interest on uninvested cash

SINGAPORE, 17 April 2023 – Saxo Capital Markets Pte. Ltd. (“Saxo”) has introduced a new, innovative interest rate model that allows clients to earn interest on their uninvested cash with no lock-in period or upper limit on amount paid.

With this new interest rate model, interest rates on clients’ deposits are updated on a daily basis based on market conditions, which means adjustments to central bank policy rates are reflected accordingly. Saxo clients will now see their deposit interest rate increase to reflect when the Monetary Authority of Singapore or Federal Reserve, for instance, raise their interest rates. 

This is part of Saxo’s commitment to be the trusted trading and investment partner for its 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 clients get a more dynamic and transparent model that follows the market developments every single day.

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

Adam Reynolds, Saxo’s APAC CEO, 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 a generous interest rate on their deposits with Saxo’s new model, increasing as they upgrade through our account plans, or 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 regardless of the daily market movements, and more transparent when and why their rate changes.”

What Saxo clients can get with the new interest rate model:
Interest on accounts is the latest of many benefits bundled into Saxo’s flexible account plans. See here for more details.

Saxo clients are in the driving seat in choosing the monthly plan with the rates and benefits which best suits their trading style and behaviour, and they’re free to switch between plans whenever they choose. 

With the newly increased interest on accounts, Saxo clients now benefit from: 
  • No strings attached. 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 any fixed term.
  • Get higher interest with larger deposits. The larger deposit clients have on their account, the higher their 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 SGD, USD, EUR and other currencies.
