Summary box for the Fixed Bond

2.86% gross/ 2.90% AER fixed interest on balances of £1 or more for two years when interest is paid monthly.
You can choose to have your interest paid annually or monthly.
No. This account has a fixed rate of interest so the rate won't change during the term.
For example, if you deposit £2000.00 when you open the account, after 24 months you will have a balance of £2117.68 after interest is paid.
- interest is paid every 12 months after you open the account
- you make your deposit on the day you open the account
- you don't add any more money.
This account can be opened and managed:
- in branch
- by phone.
You can open this account if you:
- are 16 or over
- are a UK resident
- have £2,000 or more to save.
You can open it as a sole or joint account.
You need to deposit at least £2,000 into the account within 10 days of it opening. You can make as many deposits as you like within these 10 days, up to a maximum of £1,000,000. After the 10 days are up, you can't make any further deposits.
You can’t make withdrawals from this account but you can close the account early by visiting one of our branches with a counter. Bear in mind that if you close the account before the end of the two year term, you’ll be charged the equivalent of 180 days’ gross interest. This means you may get back less than you put in.
After two years, your account will change to a Standard Saver. Before this happens, we'll contact you to explain your options and next steps.
Savings terms explained
Gross rate means we won’t deduct tax from the interest we pay on money in your account. It’s your responsibility to pay any tax you may owe to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. Whenever you see an advert for a savings account which shows an interest rate, you will see the AER. This means you can use the AER to compare accounts. It shows what the interest rate would be if your interest was paid and compounded once each year.
