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.

Deciding who to take out a savings account with can be a big decision. Although getting the best rate you can is probably your main priority you may have other considerations when it comes to deciding who you want to bank with.

Different savings options

It’s important to consider which is the most appropriate way of saving for you before you make an account, because some could stop you having access to your money for an extended period once they are opened.

 

  • Instant access accounts - are offered by most banks and building societies, but consumers should shop around for the best rate as some are more competitive than others. These accounts are useful if you want to be able to access your savings quickly in case you need them, however because of this they usually offer lower interest rates than bonds and other savings products.

 

  • Regular savings accounts – these require you to deposit a certain amount of money into the account on a monthly basis; you cannot access any of the money in the account until the end of the term when the interest has accrued.

 

  • Cash ISAs – With cash ISAs you benefit from a better interest rate as tax is not charged over it until it reaches a certain amount. But you won’t be permitted to pay any more until the beginning of the next tax year which starts on the 6th April. It is also possible to access your money quickly.

 

  • Fixed Rate Bonds – Fixed rate bonds are a form of savings that usually offer a higher interest rate than instant access savers, however they require you to lock your money away for a set period of time that you decide, usually between 1 and 5 years. Some bonds can be cashed early however there is usually a forfeit for doing so meaning you could get back less than you originally deposited.

 

  • Tracker Bonds - With this type of bond your money is secured for a predefined length of time as with a fixed rate. However instead of the rate of interest you are offered staying consistent throughout the term, a tracker’s rate is reflective of the Base Rate set down by the Bank of England. If the base rate either rises or falls so too will the interest rate on your savings bond.
