Interest rates paid on cash balances

The interest paid is banded which means the rates below apply only to the proportion of the account balance within each band. Each band of your overall cash balance will receive different rates of interest giving a blended rate. Any interest due will be paid quarterly in arrear.

Please note that our interest rates are a Managed Rate. That means that they are a rate set by us and can be amended from time to time. Any changes may or may not be linked to moves in the Bank of England base rate.

Current interest rates
