Interest rates on fixed-term deposits in the Netherlands (2024)

Fixed-term deposits are products in which you deposit your money and cannot withdraw it until after a certain period of time that is established when you open the account, which can range from a few months to several years. Normally the bank pays more for this type of deposit because you do not have daily availability of your money and the interest rate contracted at the beginning of the period remains constant for the duration of the period. If you need to withdraw the money before the term expires, you will be subject to a penalty.
