Important Information: Structured deposits offer you the potential to earn higher returns than you would with a regular savings account. Your returns are based on the performance of an index or commodity. If the investment does not perform well you may receive no income or capital growth, but you can be confident that your capital will be repaid. You have no access to your deposit during the term of the account, typically 3 to 6 years but your original capital will be repaid in full at the end of the term. In the event that the deposit taker is unable to repay your initial investment and any returns stated you may be entitled to compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) depending on your individual circumstances.

What are 1 Year fixed rate bonds? 

A 1 year fixed rate bond is a form of savings account which offer you a guaranteed interest payment over the fixed period of 12 months.

 

Advantages of Fixed Rate Bonds

  • The interest rate offered is guaranteed for 1 year. This is unlike instant access savings accounts where the interest rate can go down or up at short notice.
  • Different banks and building societies will have different views on short, medium to long term interest rates. If interest rates rise more slowly than expected a fixed rate bond may give you a better return than what you could expect from an instant access account.
  • Some fixed rate bonds provide flexibility e.g. 1 withdrawal over the term.
  • Fixed rate bonds range from 2 months to 5 years in duration so you can choose a term that suits your circumstances
  • Many fixed rate bond providers offer online access so you can see how much interest you are earning.

 

Disadvantages of Fixed Rate Bonds

  • The benefit of enjoying a higher rate of interest must be weighed against tying up your capital for a fixed term. If you need access to your capital before maturity this may not be possible and if it is there may be interest penalties.
  • If interest rates rise over the term of the investment you may find the interest rate on your capital is no longer competitive compared to new offerings in the market.
  • Many fixed rate bond providers require a high minimum deposit e.g. £5,000
