What is the interest rate?
4.67 % AER

4.57% Gross

AER is the Annual Equivalent Rate and represents what the interest rate would be if interest was realised and paid once each year.

Accrued interest is calculated daily, compounded monthly and paid gross without prior deduction of tax.

Interest is credited monthly on the last day of each month

Can Brown Shipley change the interest rate?

The interest rate applicable to your deposit is variable.

Should the bank set a date to lower the interest rate, you will be given a minimum of 14 days’ notice. You may receive less notice if the rate increases.

Please review the Meteor Asset Management (MAM) Terms and Conditions for more information.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?

The estimated balance after 12 months on a deposit of £1,000 is £1,046.70. This projection is for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account individual circumstances.

This assumes that the interest rate earned remains the same for twelve months where in reality it could increase or reduce, in which case the projection would increase or reduce accordingly.

If termination is received on a non business day (either weekend or public Holiday), the termination will be initiated on the next business day.

Once termination has been requested it can’t be revoked.

Additional information

MAM, with their administration arm Meteor Investment Management (MIM), will administer the deposit on your behalf.

Funds will appear in MIM’s account by the following business day from funding your application at the latest. Funds will be remitted to Brown Shipley by MIM on the next business day after arriving in the MIM account.

It can therefore take up to 2 business days for an ordered product to be set up and start earning interest, and up to 2 business days for withdrawals and closures to be processed and funds received back in your Raisin UK account.

Security and deposit guarantee

Deposits 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. Be 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.
