A fixed deposit (FD) is a financial instrument which offers guaranteed returns. In a fixed deposit account, money is deposited for a specific time, which varies from 7 days to ten years. Fixed deposit interest rates are also higher than those offered by savings accounts. Some fixed deposit accounts come with the facility of premature withdrawal while some have a compulsory lock-in period.
