Highest FD Rates in Malaysia: Bank Rakyat

Updated: May 11, 2020 / Home » Financial Plan » Banking

My colleague told me that she had put her money in Bank Rakyat Fixed Deposit. After she done some research, she found that the bank’s Fixed Deposit pay the highest rate.

I feel pity because I just place my money to CIMB e Fixed Deposit online few days ago, and the rate is low if compared to this Fixed Deposit rate. But, what can I do now?

Bank Rakyat Fixed Deposit also known as Qiradh Investment Account-i or Akaun Pelaburan Am-i Qiradh.

Here I prepared a table to share the highest FD rate by Bank Rakyat.

Period of Investment (month)Qiradh Investment Account Rates (%)Bank Rakyat Term Deposit Account (%)


Although the rates are very interest, but I heard that Qiradh Investment Account-i is not explicit guarantee from PIDM. I can’t found any related information from their website. I wonder that it’s safe if we place our money in this type of Investment Account?

What do you think?

Update: July 2015

Bank Rakyat is temporary stop the Qiradh General Investment Account and was replace by the Term Deposit Account-i.

    • Mister Leaf 28-06-2013 [ Reply ]

      根据网站资料,Bank Rakyat 应该是没有 PIDM 保障的。

    Is Saham Bank Rakyat. It is only open for bumiputra. 15% revenue p.a. But now they only allow each person to buy 500 shares. 1 Share = RM1.

    • Bee 25-01-2013 [ Reply ]

      Maybe you can read this article on this website. News of 2011 regarding their saham.

      Too bad, it is only for bumiputra and now they only allow RM500 per person.

        I really want to know why other bank can give such high interest to their customer, but Public Bank or Hong Leong Bank cannot?

        Same like Amanah Saham, why Public Mutual cannot give high interest to the investor? Does the Public Mutual Manager worst than Amanah Saham Manager?

    If not mistaken, is the saham for the bank itself. Not sure is it still open for public. My col is lucky, he hit 50k in. Monthly get RM600+

    • Mister Leaf 12-12-2012 [ Reply ]

      If can, please ask him the name of the fund. Thanks a lot.

  11. Bee 12-12-2012 [ Reply ]

    Maybe you can deposit your FD with 3 months tenure if you want to reduce the risk. But i know, Bank Rakyat quite stable as my col had bought their fund quite sometimes ago and the revenue is 16% per year. The only down side is, if not mistaken, the fund is only open for bumi. Correct me if i am wrong.

    • Mister Leaf 12-12-2012 [ Reply ]

      16% of return, omg. Very high return. What’s the name of the fund?
