Updated: January 4, 2021 / Home » Financial Plan » Banking

After I have written an article on topic “Highest FD Rates in Malaysia“, I got good response. Some of my friends asking me on which bank pays the highest Fixed Deposit (FD) rates for 1 month. So, today I’m going to share the best 1 month FD Rates in Malaysia.

If we have RM 5000 for fixed deposit placement, which bank and what type of the account should we choose? In order to get the best 1 month FD, I have prepared the following table.

2MBSB Conventional Fixed Deposit3.10% p.a.No explicit guarantee from PIDM.

6AgroBank Fixed

Update: July 2017

From the table above, we know that Bank Rakyat pay the highest 1 month Fixed Deposite rates. However, most of the bank in Malaysia like Maybank, CIMB or RHB is giving 2.95% or 3.00%.

In my view, Bank Rakyat pay the highest Fixed Deposite rates because their branches are less if compare to other bank. Besides, Bank Rakyat is no explicit guarantee from PIDM, so they pay higher rates to attract people.
