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 first day of every subsequent month and paid to you on termination of your savings product.
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 60 days’ notice. You may receive less notice if the rate increases.

Your deposits with OakNorth Bank plc, 60 Day Notice Account – 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 deposits of up to the £85,000 per person, per banking group limit.
Your deposit will be administered by MAM and Meteor Investment Management Limited (MIM) who will process your application and cash respectively. Cash and deposits will be held by MIM and MAM in trust for you under FCA client money and asset rules.
In the event that MIM or MAM cannot meet their obligations you will remain the beneficial owner of any deposits purchased for you, and also cash held on your behalf in MIM’s client account. In both cases, these will remain covered under the FSCS protection for the deposit taker or the banks holding client money to £85,000. For more details, please see our MAM Terms and Conditions.
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.
