Depends really how much you have to invest and the amount of time you want to tie up your capital.

Hi all,

It's my experience that its governed by how much money you have on deposit and which type of account you want, some one who has 5K on deposit will get less than someone with 50K and someone with 100K wont get as much as someone with 500k, it's good to shop around and ask, but the banks are now controlled a lot better than in the past and most guarantee deposits up to a certain amount.

A point here, Credit west seemingly guarantee deposits up to 20K and you can have several accounts with this amount in all guaranteed, but other banks dont, possibly worth checking out

hi guys

firstly one thing i would say is keep to the well known banks, lile zirat bank, finans,garanti, hsbc, turk bankasi,vakif,seker all big turkish banks the reason i say this is because you know your money is safe, up to a few years ago banks were popping up left right and centre offering really good interest taking peoples money and then going bankrupt, even thou its more regulated now but its better to be safe than sorry

most of the top banks offer the same kind of interest 19%-20% is the standard

but like a few people have said it tottaly depends how much capital you are putting in and how long you going to leave it in for

there are many savings plans like government bonds, fones (many types of fones liquid a-b-c) you could get more interest on some savings account but remember the better the interest the higher the risk so you could loose money aswell as earn so dont always go for the better interest rate on a savings plan!!

i bank with hsbc and i keep a head of whats going on the best at the moment is monthly liquid b fones min risk with this i get 20%, how this works is you have your lump sum in lira from the first of the month to the end of the month then at the end of the month the interest you earn gets deposited into your normal savings account and if you want your lump sum carries on again, the thing is thou you cant touch your lump sum otherwise you will loose that months interest

just for a example if you have 15K in lira you earn around 500ytl a month after tax, so calculate from that

hope this helps

Hi Ukturk

Is the fones liquid account the same as the Time account where we can only add/remove money on a certain day of the month otherwise we lose one month's interest?

Thank you. I'm easily confused where saving money is concerned, not so when spending it though
