Standard Chartered JumpStart Account
Asked on 03 Apr 2020
So am I right to say that if I have 20k in my account I'll get about 33. 33$ interest every month?
The interest is calculated at the end of each day and credit to your account at the end of each month.
Assuming that you keep $20k in your account everyday for one month, you will receive an interest of $20,000 x 2%/12 = $33.33
Thereafter, take note that balance above $20k will earn an interest rate of 0.1% per annum.
Hence, if you keep $20,033.33 for the second month, you will get
$20,000 x 2%/12 + $33.33 x 0.1%/12.
And the mathmatics continue accordingly.
I share quality content on estate planning and financial planning here.
Interested is credited monthly so its 2/12% per month, but note that the interest remains in the account, and anything above 20k doesn't get the 2%.
