About our Fixed Rate Bonds
If you’re looking to let your money work for you, a personal fixed bond could be just what you need. Our fixed rate saving accounts can often give you better interest rates than our other accounts, but there’s a few things you’ll need to consider before opening one. Keep reading to find out all you need to know about our fixed rate savings bonds and if it’s the right option for you and your finances.
What is a fixed rate saving bond?
A fixed bond savings account allows you to put your cash away for a set amount of time where it’ll earn a fixed amount of interest. During this period, you won’t be able to access your money, but you may get to benefit from a higher interest rate than our other types of savings accounts.
Fixed rate savings bonds are usually best suited to those depositing a large amount of money. The longer your fixed term, the higher interest rates you’ll unlock – allowing you to really let your money do all the heavy lifting.
Who can open a personal fixed bond savings account?
Anyone depositing a lump sum of at least £1,000 can take advantage of our fixed rate savings bonds. However, you should only consider this type of savings account if you won’t need to access your money for a fixed period. Additionally, if you’re a regular saver, fixed bond savings may not be suited to you as, after opening your account, you’ll have a set period of time to deposit your money, then after that you won’t be able to add anything else.

Benefits of fixed bond savings
There are a few great benefits to putting your cash into fixed bond savings, including:
- The longer you save, the more you save: If you can part with your cash for a longer amount of time, you’ll often get better interest rates. This makes it a great option if you’re depositing a big lump sum that you won’t need to access.
- Higher interest rates: Because we know how long your money will be with us, we can often offer you higher interest rates than our other accounts.
- FSCS protection: up to £85,000 is protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), so you can be rest assured that your money’s safe and secure.
