Investments – Grow Your Money

Make your money work as hard as it can with a Term or Call Investment with WBS. Whether you want easy access to your savings or a higher interest rate for a fixed term, we can tailor an investment package to suit.

Call Investments

There are no fixed terms with a Call Investment, so you can access your money or top it up whenever you like. Remember, if you do make a withdrawal you’ll earn less interest. Enquire here or we can have a chat at our offices.

All new accounts are subject to a $500 minimum investment.
