Elite Kids Account Interest Calculation

The account is entitled an additional bonus rate of 0.60% on top of normal rate of 0.25% if the average daily balance increases SGD50 from the previous month.

Average Daily Balance = Total amount of day-end balance for (xx) days in the month / number of days in the month(xx)
For Example : Below is a simple illustration on how Average Daily Balance is calculated:

● Your account has a day-end balance of $200 daily from 1 to 10 July, so total amount of daily balances for 10 days is:
$200 x 10 Days = $2,000.
● Your account has a day-end balance of $300 daily from 11 to 20 July, so total amount of daily balances for 10 days is:
$300 x 10 Days = $3,000.
● Your account has a day-end balance of $1,000 daily from 21 to 31 July, so total amount of daily balances for 11 days is: 
$1,000 x 11 Days = $11,000
● Total amount of daily balances for 31 days in July is:
$2,000 + $3,000 + $11,000 = $16,000
● Average Daily Balance is therefore: $16,000 divide by 31 (number of days in the month) = $516.13

If Average Daily Balance(July) - Average Daily Balance(June) < $50, Elite kid account interest calculate by normal interest only.

If Average Daily Balance(July) - Average Daily Balance(June) ≧ $50, Elite kid account can enjoy both Normal Interest and Bonus Interest.

Normal Interest = Accumulate (Day-end Balance* Normal IR / 365)

Bonus Interest = (Accumulate Day-end Balance)* Bonus IR * / 365

For Example:
Elite kid Account Normal Interest = $200*0.25%*1/365+…$1000*0.25%*1/365 = $0+…$0.01 = $0.11
Elite kid Account Bonus Interest = ($200*10+$300*10+ $1000*11)*0.60% /365 = $0.26
Normal Interest and Bonus Interest will be automatically computed and credited once every month for current account. Normal interest credit is on the 1st day of the month. Bonus Interest credit is on 2nd day of the month.
