Compare Shawbrook Bank savings accounts

Finding the right savings account for you can be the key to getting the most out of your savings. If you think your money is not working hard enough, you might want to change your savings account.

Shawbrook Bank offer a range of savings options that could help you reach your savings goals quickly.

Easy Access Savings Accounts

An easy access account can allow you to stay flexible with your savings. The majority of easy access accounts allow you to make withdrawals without penalty and earn interest on your savings.

Shawbrook Bank’s Easy Access account has a relatively small interest rate, but you can remain flexible with your savings and make unlimited withdrawals.

Notice Savings Accounts

Notice savings accounts often advertise higher interest rates, but require a number of days’ notice for withdrawals.

The notice savings account from Shawbrook Bank has a higher rate of interest than their easy access account. However, to benefit from this higher interest, you will have to provide 120 days’ notice to make a withdrawal.

Fixed Rate Bonds

Typically, the best interest rates available on the market come with fixed rate bonds. In exchange for higher interest rates, you cannot withdraw from your savings for the life of the fixed rate bond.

Shawbrook Bank has a wide selection of fixed rate bonds, which run between 1 and 7 years.  It should be noted that Shawbrook Bank’s best interest rate is reserved for their longest fixed rate bond.

Cash ISAs

Cash ISAs can allow you to earn up to £20,000 tax-free interest. This could be an appealing prospect, if you have a large amount of savings that is likely to earn a lot of interest.

The cash ISA available with Shawbrook Bank allows you to take advantage of the tax-free interest allowance, as well as giving you unlimited access to your savings.
