The three banks are now tied to offer the highest one-year deposit rates on the market at 4.10% p.a. based on Savings.com.au market research. 

AMP was the first to make a move this week, increasing deposit rates across its offerings by up to 20 basis points (0.20%). 

AMP's 12-month deposit offering requiring a minimum of $5,000 with interest paid at the end of term increased by 0.20% taking the rate to 4.05% p.a. 

For those with balances of $25,000, AMP increased its 12-month deposit rate to 4.10% p.a. with interest paid at the end of term. 

Macquarie increases term deposit rates by up to 0.25%

One of Australia's largest banks followed the lead of AMP, increasing term deposit rates by up to 25 basis points this week. 

Macquarie's one-year term deposit rate increased 20 basis points, taking the rate to match Judo and AMP at 4.10% p.a. 

Unlike AMP where a larger deposit is required, the minimum deposit amount for Macquarie's one-year rate is $5,000 with interest paid annually. 

Since the RBA commenced cash rate increases in May, Macquarie has increased deposit rates across its one-year product by a total of 135 basis points (1.35%).
