Factors affecting Fixed Deposit Interest Rates
- Change in Policies Rates by RBI: If there is a change in Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) and/ or Repo Rate, it affects the fixed deposit interest rate.
- Inflation: As FD interest rate has to be kept higher than inflation by the banks, hence if inflation increases then FD interest rates also go higher. When inflation decreases, banks offer lower interest rates so that people can borrow and spend more.
- Demand and Supply of Credit: With the increase in demand of the credit/ loan, interest rates of fixed deposit also go higher. When the supply is more than the demand of credit, banks offer lower interest rates on fixed deposit.
- Growth Uncertainty: If there is any uncertainty of future economic growth, the banks need to offer higher interest rates on FD as a compensation for higher default risks.
- State of Economy: If a country's economic state is very good then the banks of that country offer higher interest rate on fixed deposits in order to attract more investments to extend more credits/ loans.
- Recession: Whenever there is a situation of recession in an economy, it always results into a decrease in the fixed deposit interest rate, as in case of situation of recession, the RBI needs to increase the liquidity in the market by releasing the funds i.e. by lowering CRR and hence, banks reduce the FD interest rates.
- Global Liquidity: Higher global liquidity results into higher domestic liquidity. In such cases banks will offer lower interest rates on FD.
