0.75% TFSA Interest Rate

Not only is this the first time I have seen any TFSA Interest rate plan go under one percent, but what an odd combination of banks. PC Financial, RBC and CIBC have dropped its rates to 0.75% as you can see.

Normally all the big banks would follow each other at the same time. I suppose everyone should expect the other banks to follow suit in the near future as well.

Bank Wide Interest Rate Drops To One Percent

I was checking a lot of the banks TFSA intrest rates today and it looks like interest rates have dropped throughout many of the banks to 1%. PC Financial, RBC, BMO, CIBC, Scotiabank and HSBC all seem to share the same rate now as you can see below:

Although, for HSBC’s Direct TFSA it is 1.05%. Insanely low rates though regardless. Guess there is no such thing as the one king of low interest rates now as it is a party.

The Lowest TFSA Interest Rate of All Time

Well, as of this day at least. And the award goes to…….. PC Financial. At an astonishing rate of 1.2% this is the lowest TFSA interest that I have ever seen as you can see here:

I’m inclined to say that it is trivial to invest in a TFSA account with them with that low of an interest rate as even if you had to pay taxes using a more traditional high interest savings account you would earn more in the end.

How is it that they are offering a lower rate than the big banks considering this financial institution should have a lower overhead without things like an in-store branch?
