How to Open a BDO Time Deposit Account

Are you looking for information on how to open a BDO time deposit account? I believe many people are finding ways on how to invest their money properly and wisely. Perhaps you have seen many banks closing their operation in the past few years like what happened to LBC Bank and Export & Industry Bank.

Although time deposit is insured by Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC) since it is a deposit account, you still want a stable bank that you can trust on. I believe you don’t want to experience filing your claims in PDIC that will take months to complete.

Why Choose BDO Time Deposit?
Basically, one best reason why most people invest in time deposit is the assurance of profit while the principal is insured by Philippine government through PDIC. I think it is one of the safest investment out there today but doesn’t give the highest earnings. Not maybe the best but still your principal is protected.

BDO Time Deposit is a service offered by the biggest bank in the Philippines, BDO, which is one of the most stable and established banks in the country. As an individual investor, you should look for a bank that can take care of your money in this uncertain times and BDO can be a best choice.

How to Apply for BDO Time Deposit Account
Applying for a BDO time deposit is not difficult as it may seems to be. Basically, if you want to invest in time deposit, the only way to do it is by visiting your BDO branch. Otherwise, if you have other questions about investing in time deposit, you can send a message to BDO by clicking this link.

I’m searching BDO’s website if it is possible to open a time deposit via online application. However, I cannot find any information about how to do it. I’m assuming it is not possible to do it online so you have to go to your branch to open a BDO time deposit account. | Your smart guide to money matters and entrepreneurship.
