Additional information

The information provided in this summary box is a summary of the key features of this Account and should be read in conjunction with our Product Sheet.

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 Investec by MIM on the second business day after arriving in the MIM account. It can therefore take up to 3 business days for an ordered product to be set up and start earning interest.

Cash and deposits will be held by MIM and MAM in trust for you under FCA client money and asset rules.

You have the right to cancel your account without charge and without giving any reason, within 14 calendar days from the day of opening this savings account. For further information, please refer to clauses 1.18 and 1.19 of the MAM Terms and Conditions.

AER (Annual Equivalent Rate) illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once a year.

Interest will be paid gross. Gross interest does not take into account any tax payable.

Depending on your individual circumstances, you might have to pay tax on any interest you earn. If you have any specific tax questions you should seek professional tax advice.

Security and deposit guarantee

Deposits are eligible for protection by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) http://www.fscs.org.uk/. 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.’ and vice versa.
