What are fixed rate bonds?


Fixed rate bonds are a form of savings account which offer you a guaranteed interest payment over a fixed period of time. The longer the period of time generally the higher the interest payment paid.


Advantages


  • The interest rate offered is guaranteed for the term of the bond. 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 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


  • 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

 

Other types of plan you may wish to think about


  • Tracker bonds – These are similar to fixed rate, but instead of your interest rate staying consistent throughout 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 – Like a bond a structured deposit requires you to lock up your funds for a period of time. This type of plan is normally tied to an index such as the FTSE 100. If over the 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.
