If you don't need access to your savings, you could earn a higher rate of interest with a fixed-term bond.
Our Fixed Rate Bonds pay a fixed rate of interest for a set period of time, making them ideal for lump sum deposits.
We have received a fantastic response to our latest series of bonds. Thank you to everyone who applied, however, due to this success we are temporarily closing our latest fixed-rate bonds to new applications.
If your application is received after the issue has been closed, we will contact you to obtain further instructions.
Please check our site regularly for details of new bond issues when they become available.
Your Questions Answered
How much do I need to open an account?
You can open the account with any amount from £500 to £1 million; no additional funds can be added at any time.
Can I make withdrawals from my Fixed Rate Bond?
No withdrawals are permitted during the fixed rate period. When the fixed rate term ends, you will have instant access to your savings with no restrictions. We will write to remind you of this shortly before your term ends.
Can I close my Fixed Rate Bond early?
No - closure during the fixed rate period is not permitted.
Am I guaranteed to be accepted for this bond issue?
Whe we announce new bonds, they are on a strictly limited issue and applications are accepted on a ‘first come, first served’ basis until the issue has been fully subscribed. If your application is received after the issue has been closed, we will contact you to obtain further instructions.
When is the interest due?
Depending on which of our Fixed Rate Bonds you have, interest will be added to your account when the account matures (see above for dates). If you prefer, the interest can be transferred to another account with us or paid to your bank
