Is a Skipton Building Society fixed rate bond right for you?

Current accounts usually offer the most attractive rates of interest for your savings, but only up to a certain deposit limit. For example, TSB will give you 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. For savings above these thresholds, transferring your money into a fixed rate bond is likely to be a good investment.

With a fixed rate bond, you agree to lock your money away for the term of the bond in exchange for a predetermined rate of interest applicable for the life of the bond. This can help protect your savings from losing their real world value due to the effect of inflation.

Bonds commonly last for 1 year, 2 years, 3 years or 5 years and the longer the deposit term, the better interest rate you will usually receive. Fixed term bonds are relatively quick and easy to set up and allow you to start getting a better return on your savings without needing to disrupt the normal workings of your existing current account.

Why choose a Skipton Building Society fixed rate bond?

Founded in 1853, Skipton Building Society is one of the UK’s largest building societies. Their fixed rate bond customers can take advantage of the following:

  • Minimum deposit of £500
  • Maximum deposit of £1million
  • Interest can be taken month, annually or on maturity
  • You can make additional deposits into the account until such time as the product is withdrawn from sale
  • Manage your account online or in branch and by post depending on the type of bond

Restrictions

Getting the best deal on fixed rate bonds
