      Maybank iSAVvy Savings Plus Account

      Maybank offers one of the highest interest rates without having to "stack up" (i.e. OCBC 360, DBS Multiplier). I use this account to "park" my excess money, because it gives higher interest:)

      Maybank iSAVvy Savings Plus Account

      Highest interest rate you can get. However, you can only put the money for 2 months and then you have to transfer out.
