Account Name

1 Year Fixed Rate Savings Bond Issue 9


What is the interest rate?

Interest rate for balances of £5,000 or more:

Annual Interest (Fixed) 1.25% Gross / AER

Interest is calculated daily. We credit the interest on the closure of your account.


Can Shawbrook Bank change the interest rate?

As the interest rate is fixed, the interest rate cannot be changed over the term of the account.


What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £5,000 deposit?

A deposit of £5,000 at an annual Gross rate of 1.25% (fixed) would generate an estimated balance of £5,063 in one year - This is for illustrative purposes only.

(This illustrative example assumes no withdrawals, no changes to the fixed interest rate over the period and interest is paid and compounded annually on a cleared deposit. Interest is rounded to the nearest pound. The illustrative example does not take into account the individual circumstances of a customer.)

Terms Explained

AER. This stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. If you left a sum of money in your account all year, the AER would be the interest rate you’d get if we paid you interest during the course of the year and your subsequently higher balance then earned more interest (this is known as Compound Interest). The AER will only be higher than the gross interest rate where we pay you interest more than once a year. We quote the AER on all of our accounts so that you can compare our products with those of other banks.

GROSS is the interest rate without the deduction of income tax. This is the interest rate paid on your account.

If you have spare cash in your business, it makes sense to put it to work earning interest. And if you can commit to placing your money on deposit for a fixed term, you could get a great rate from Shawbrook.

A fixed rate bond could be ideal if you’re putting money aside for a specific period of time - for example, if you know you will have financial commitments to meet in a year’s time or more. You won’t be able to access the funds before the end of the term, but in return you’ll get an attractive rate
