AER (in our product 3.41%) is all about providing a more accurate understanding of your returns, factoring in the effects of compounding when interest is added more frequently than annually.
Gross yield (in our product 3.35%), on the other hand, gives you a straightforward view of the equivalent year rate that you would have, if you had a fixed capital and money was not re-invested every day. Meaning its the rate between your total earnings before any deductions like taxes or fees are applied, and your initial capital (with no re-investment)
When comparing different savings accounts or investment options, please focus on the AER since it provides a fair basis for evaluating and choosing the version that best suits your financial goals.
We want to make sure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions and make the most out of your savings!
You must keep your savings funds for at least an entire day (24hs) to get any reward on your deposit. Remember that AstroPay will consider any deposit for a specific date only if the money allocation was before 11 am (0 GMT).
