Stashaway Simple - Fixed Deposit Killer?

Stashaway Simple - Fixed Deposit Killer?

This year Bank Negara has cut rates 4 times, taking the OPR from 3% to 1.75%. This is the lowest level since 2004.

While the central bank has done this to help stimulate the economy, it’s also punishing savers as Fixed Deposit rates have also fallen.

As savers look for the best rates for their cash, one of the options that has come up is Stashway Simple.

Roshan speaks to Ken about their new cash management product, and also gets into the direct debit technical issue Stashaway faced earlier in the week, as well as their recent portfolio optimisation on the back of unprecedented monetary policy from the US Federal Reserve.
