Can you explain how the interest calculation works?
Each month, OCBC will credit your interest to your OCBC 360 Account to help you earn on your savings. But since you’ll make banking transactions throughout the month – withdrawals and deposits etc., how will the bank determine how much interest to pay you?
Introducing the concept of average daily account balance: Anisa who keeps RM10,000 for 29 days in the month November and deposits RM90,000 extra on the very last day won’t get interest based on the final RM100,000 at the end.
Rather the bank will calculate how much was in Anisa’s account on average:
Average daily account balance
= [29 X RM10,000 + 1 X RM100,000] / 30
If Anisa qualified for the special 4.1% interest rate p.a. she’ll earn RM44.42 interest for the month of November!
