Other types of plan you may wish to think about

  • Tracker bonds – This is another choice of bond that differs from fixed rate in that instead of your interest rate staying consistent over the bond’s term, it will change in reflection to any increases or decreases in the Base Rate set by the Bank of England. This means if during the term the base rate raises you will benefit from an increase in how much you receive in interest, if however it decreases you will receive less.

 

  • Structured Deposits – these are similar to bonds in that you have to lock up your money in the investment for a set period of time. However this type of plan is normally tied to an index such as the FTSE 100. If during plan the index or indices perform in a certain way you will receive your original investment back plus an interest payment typically larger than those offered by bonds or savings accounts. However if it does not perform in a certain way set out at the start of the plan you will receive your investment back but will no gains on it, so it is a risk that needs to be carefully considered beforehand.

 

  • Savings Account – If you are looking into how you can earn interest on your savings while maintaining access to them should you ever need them before the end of the term then an instant access savings account may be the solution to you. Although they do offer lower interest rates than bonds or structured deposits, they usually offer unlimited free withdrawals meaning if you should ever need your savings you don’t need to worry about any forfeit for closing the account early.
