What is the interest rate?
4.91 % AER

4.91% AER / 4.80% gross

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. This shows you what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year.

Gross is the rate of interest payable before income tax is deducted.

Interest is calculated daily and is paid into the Easy Access Account on the last day of each month, or upon closure of the Easy Access Account.

Interest will be paid gross without prior deduction of tax.

Can Monument Bank change the interest rate?

The interest rate applicable to this Easy Access Account is variable and may change from time to time at Monument’s discretion.

If Monument increases the interest rate, the new interest rate will apply immediately, and you will be notified as soon as possible.

If Monument decreases the interest rate, you will receive at least 14 days’ notice before the new interest rate will apply.

Please see the Meteor Asset Management Terms and Conditions for more information.

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.
