18 Month Fixed Rate Bond (16.Sep.24)
Interest is calculated daily and applied on 31 December and on maturity. You can choose to have your interest added to your Fixed Rate Bond or paid away to your Nominated Account.
No, the interest rate is fixed. This means that the rate of interest payable on your account will remain the same from the time you open your account until the end of the fixed rate period.
Your estimated balance would be £1,064.42 based on a deposit of £1,000 after 18 months.
This is for illustrative purposes only, does not take into account individual circumstances and makes the following assumptions:
- Your initial deposit is paid into the Bond when it is opened
- No further deposits are made
- Interest is added to your Bond
To open an account you must:
- Be 18 or over
- Reside in the UK
- Have a minimum deposit of £1,000
The minimum operating balance for personal accounts is £1,000, and the maximum aggregate balance across all accounts held is £1,000,000.
How to open the account and pay in:
