Is a Lloyds fixed rate bond right for you?

How can you tell if you are getting the best possible deal on your savings? If you would like to earn the highest available interest rate, a current account will usually offer this, but only up to a certain deposit threshold. You will generally earn no interest on any balance above this threshold.

For example, TSB are offering 5% AER on their TSB current account for balances up to £2,000, while Santander pay 1.5% AER up to a limit of £20,000. If your savings are greater than the interest limit on your current account, a fixed rate bond can be the ideal solution.

Fixed rate bonds allow you to earn a guaranteed rate of interest for the life of the bond, which will most commonly be 1 year, 2 years, 3 years or 5 years. The longer the bond lasts for, the higher the interest rate you will usually be offered.

Putting your savings into a fixed rate bond means you won’t usually be able to use that money for anything else until the bond matures. However, some providers do allow you to remove funds early, in exchange for a financial penalty.

If you are not earning money on your savings then their real world value is likely to be decreasing due to the impact of inflation. Putting your cash into one or more fixed rate bonds can prevent this and should result in the buying power of your savings increasing by the time your bond matures

Why choose a Lloyds fixed rate bond?

Lloyds Banking Group is one of the UK’s biggest and best known financial institutions. They offer the following benefits with their fixed rate bonds:

  • Minimum deposit of £2,000
  • Maximum deposit of £1million
  • Interest can be paid monthly, annually or when your bond matures
  • Manage your account by phone and in branch

Restrictions

When taking out a fixed rate bond with Lloyds, please be aware of the following:

  • You must be at least 16 years old
  • You must be a UK resident
  • No early withdrawals are permitted

Compare Lloyds fixed rate bonds

Lloyds currently offer 2 year fixed rate bonds to their customers. If you would like to take out a bond over a longer period in order to earn a better rate of interest, please take a look at other providers such as Aldermore, UBL and Vanquis.

Getting the best deal on fixed rate bonds

Interest rates and other conditions on savings accounts, including fixed rate bonds, change regularly to reflect shifts in market conditions and customer demand. This can make it hard for consumers to keep up with which brands and products are currently offering the best value.

Using our fixed rate bond comparison tool above, you can quickly and easily see which products represent the best deal for you. We frequently update these deals with the most competitive offers we can find to save you the trouble of manually comparing different brands and their products.

Before making an investment into a fixed rate bond, you need to be confident you are making a choice you will be happy with for the full term of the account. To achieve this, make sure you carefully reflect on the return you would like to see and your existing financial commitments and any that are likely to arise in the foreseeable future.
