Fixed Rate Bond


Fixed Rate Bonds generally offer a higher rate of interest for money that you can afford to put away for a year or more. The rate of interest is fixed for the full term of the bond, but you need to ensure you won't need access to your savings as you won't be able to make a withdrawal until the end of the fixed period.

Bonds are limited edition accounts which may be withdrawn from sale at any time without notice, so if you see one you like, don’t wait too long to apply as there are no guarantees it will still be available the next time you look. You can apply for and manage your bond either online or through the post.

To make sure it's the right account for you, please read through the Key product details and the Is it for me? sections, together with the General Savings Conditions and the Key Features & Summary Box document which includes the specific conditions for the account.
