The maturity amount of a Fixed Deposit is a combination of deposit amount, deposit tenor, rate of interest, and interest payout frequency.
Here’ how maturity amount is calculated:
• Deposit amount: This is the amount of money you will deposit to open a Fixed Deposit. The higher the deposit amount, higher is the maturity amount.
• Deposit tenor: The amount of time you would stay invested in the Fixed Deposit. Usually, FDs have a lock-in period. Longer tenor results in higher maturity amount.
• Deposit type: There are two types of FDs: Cumulative and Non-Cumulative. Both have different frequencies of interest payouts.
• Interest rate: The percentage of interest that you can earn on your Fixed Deposit. Each financial institution offer different rates, ranging from 3% to 9%. Higher the rate, higher is the maturity amount.
