Certificate of Deposit

If you have a certain amount of money that you do not need for a particular period, we recommend you to buy a Certificate of Deposit (CD) and get a high-interest rate. Certificate of Deposit will be issued electronically. PASHA Bank Georgia offers standard and non-standard CDs. The terms and conditions for standard CD are based on NBG’s provision of standard certificates of deposit for commercial banks.

You can buy Coupon CD (interest-bearing) or Zero-coupon CD (discounted):

Coupon CD is sold at a face value and the interest is paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual.

The zero-coupon CD is sold at a discounted rate, which then pays out the face value at maturity. The difference between the face value and the purchase amount is the interest earned by the client.
