Depositing money

Tailored savings

Our deposit accounts are available for clients who have a current account. We have deposit accounts for individuals, and for other entities including charities, trusts and limited companies. While we are able to tailor solutions individually, some services that clients typically use are:

  • Call (Instant Access) accounts: These offer a competitive rate for those who want the freedom to withdraw their funds at any time. There is no minimum amount required to open a call account. Interest from these accounts is paid monthly, and these accounts have a variable rate of interest, where the interest rate changes typically as a result of changes to the Bank of England base rate.
  • 95 Day Notice accounts: Accounts with an increased rate of interest, for those who do not need instant access to their funds. Interest from these accounts is paid monthly, and Notice accounts require a minimum of £50,000 to open and maintain. These accounts have a variable rate of interest, where the interest rate changes typically as a result of changes to the Bank of England base rate.
  • Term accounts: We can tailor fixed-term, fixed-interest deposit accounts for any period up to 1 year. These accounts also require a minimum of £50,000. Interest from these accounts is paid at the maturity of the agreed term.
