What is a corporate deposit?
Corporate Deposits are loan provisions where a particular amount of funds is placed on deposit under account holder’s name. The money placed on deposit gets a fixed rate of interest, as per the terms and conditions that administers the account. The actual amount of the fixed rate can be swayed by factors as the type of currency involved in the deposit, the period set in place for the deposit, and the place where the deposit is made.
