AMFIE FLEXIBLE TermDeposit
Improve your savings by investing for a fixed period of time
The “AMFIE Flexible” investment is a term deposit in euros, US dollars and pounds sterling, available at any time, providing our members with a higher interest than that of a simple sight deposit while ensuring flexibility.
An imaginative investment for your deposits
AMFIE offers for the moment only 12 months investments, with a level of interest earned depending primarily on the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (Euribor). Accrued interest (on which is applied a 10% withholding tax for residents of Luxembourg) is calculated on the basis of the number of actual days between the investment and reimbursement (completed time period or early withdrawal).
Should you wish to make an early withdrawal, please inform the secretariat beforehand (allowing at least two working days), indicating the desired date of withdrawal. If there is no early withdrawal, the investment continues for the specified period. Automatic renewal (of capital-only or capital plus interest) can be requested.
