Yup ... I just got that ^ email too. I drained my Oaken SA about 2 months ago ... and now it's going to stay that way.

On the Up-side though, their 18 month GIC is still @ 2.10%. sf-smile

Interesting times, for sure ❗

It appears they are discouraging liquidity in favour of term deposits. Is HCG struggling again and do not want to risk another run on the bank?

Oaken is the best for giving advance warning. I have been laddering the 18 mo GIC, but expecting this, so time to go 'all in'
