About Axis Bank (UK) Ltd
Founded in 2013, Axis Bank UK Ltd. is a wholly owned subsidiary of AXIS BANK LTD. and is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority.
Deposits made into savings accounts offered by Axis Bank UK Ltd. through the Raisin UK savings marketplace are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
AER is the Annual Equivalent Rate and represents what the interest rate would be if interest was realised and paid once each year.
Interest is calculated daily, compounded annually and is payable on maturity. Interest will be paid gross without prior deduction of tax.
The interest rate applicable to your savings account is fixed once the bank approves your application and you fund your account. The rate will stay the same throughout the duration of the fixed term at this time.
If the full amount you wish to deposit fully clears into your Raisin UK Account before a rate change occurs, you will open your savings account at that original rate.
Should the bank amend the rate advertised before you have fully funded your Raisin UK account, and the rate is higher than your original order, you will receive the new higher rate.
Should the bank amend the rate advertised before you have fully funded your Raisin UK account and the rate is lower than the rate you originally ordered, you will have 7 calendar days from that date to fund your Raisin UK account to receive the original rate, after which time we will cancel your order. You will be contacted if this occurs.
Please ensure you log in and check your Raisin UK Account during the funding process.
The estimated gross interest earned upon the date of maturity on a deposit of £10,000 is £444.84. This projection is for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account individual circumstances.

This deposit account does NOT operate on the basis that you can end the fixed term of your deposit prematurely and pay a fee to withdraw your funds sooner.

If Raisin UK do not receive a response from you, your deposit will be held in your Raisin UK Account, at the end of the fixed term until you decide what you would like to do with the proceeds.
Your savings account will not automatically renew at the end of the fixed term for a further fixed term.
Transfers of funds must be received within 60 days (the order window) of your savings account account application date. Any funds received after this period will be held in your Raisin UK Account, awaiting your instruction.
Funds must be transferred to your Raisin UK Account from a UK bank or building society account in your name and by electronic bank transfer only, and to the exact amount pledged when you ordered the account.
Should you under-fund the amount you pledged and the order window closes, your order will be cancelled. Should you over-fund, the amount remitted over the original pledge will be held pending your instruction in your Raisin UK Account.

Your deposits with Axis Bank UK Ltd – 2 Year Fixed Term Deposit – are eligible for protection by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS is the United Kingdom’s statutory deposit guarantee scheme that covers deposits in individual savings accounts up to £85,000, per banking group regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority or the Prudential Regulation Authority. It is available for deposits with most UK high-street and online banks and means if the bank fails, and deposits become unavailable, the scheme may cover your deposit account deposit up to the £85,000 per person, per banking group limit.
Compensation limits are per person per firm, not per deposit. Please aware that if you have other deposits with this bank (or banking group) then the £85,000 protection applies only to eligible deposits up to this limit.
