Can National Bank of Egypt (UK) Limited change the interest rate?

The interest rate applicable to your savings account is fixed once your application is approved and you fund your account. The rate will stay the same throughout the duration of the fixed term. Should the bank amend the rate advertised before you have fully transferred funds and the rate is lower than the rate you originally ordered, you will have 14 days to cancel your application, and your original deposit amount will be returned to your Transaction Account. We will contact you if this occurs.

Please note, for renewal orders the rate you will receive will be confirmed as the rate available 5 days before the date of maturity. Please see our FAQs for more information.

What would the estimated balance be after 6 months based on a £10,000 deposit?

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.

Timescales for the return of your money can vary between different banks and banking groups. This bank holds funds under a trust model. Funds held under a trust model can take up to three months to be returned, but in most cases will be returned sooner than this.’
