Fixed Rate Savings

Lock away a lump sum for one year

Lock a fixed lump sum away for a fixed term of one year at a fixed rate and you'll receive between 0.65% AER/Gross and 0.75% AER/Gross depending on how much you save. Deposit matures on 27 April 2020.

Just to let you know from Friday 26 April 2019, we will be changing the rates offered on our Fixed Rate Saver to 0.70% AER/Gross across all balance tiers. 


  • save a one-off lump sum between £2,000 and £1 million
  • fixed interest rates depending on your deposit
  • know exactly how much interest you'll earn over the fixed term
  • you can have more than one Fixed Rate Savings account per person. New bonds are released every month and interest rates may vary between them
  • no partial withdrawals allowed, and no additional deposits
  • you'll be charged £100 if you take your money out before the end of the fixed term and depending on when you do this, you could get back less than originally paid in.

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. This shows you what the rate would be if interest were paid and compounded each year.

Gross is the rate of interest if interest were paid and not compounded each year.
