What's the interest rate?

Gross % AER %
1.4 % 1.4 %
  • These rates are effective from 27th March 2020 and are fixed until the end of your product term.
  • All interest is paid gross and added to your savings balance at the end of the 366th day from the date your account was opened.
  • ‘AER’ or ‘Annual Equivalent Rate’ is the official rate for savings accounts, and is designed to make it easy to compare rates between different accounts. The AER shows you what return you'd get over 12 months if you put money in an account and left it there.
  • ‘Gross’ is the flat rate of interest you’ll actually earn in a year.

Can SmartSave change the interest rate?

  • No. The interest rate on your Fixed Rate Saver savings account will stay the same until the end of the 1 year fixed term.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £10,000 deposit, £20,000 deposit and a £50,000 deposit?

These examples are provided for illustrative purposes only and don't take into account your individual circumstances or deposit amounts. These projections are based on the full deposit amount being deposited on the day your account is opened.

£10,000.00 £10,140.00 £140.00
£20,000.00 £20,280.00 £280.00
£50,000.00 £50,700.00 £700.00

This is the amount of money you’ll have in your savings account after 12 months, if your balance is £10,000, £20,000 or £50,000 from the first day onwards, if no further deposits are made or withdrawn and your interest is added to your balance.
