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.

If you are already a Smile current account holder you may be able receive more competitive interest rates on Smile savings accounts, but accounts are also open to new customers.

Smile savings accounts may include:
  • Cash ISAs offer tax-free saving 
  • No-notice accounts that allow instant access to savings 
  • Fixed term deposit account offering a guaranteed fixed interest rate
  • Cash card provided allowing access to savings via cash machines, as well as online

Different providers offer different incentives, such as higher interest rates and varying withdrawal and deposit conditions on savings accounts; you can also find regular saver accounts and ones that reward you with higher returns for larger single investments.

Structured deposits offer capital protection similar to savings accounts but with the potential for competitive returns. The returns are not normally guaranteed, but linked to the performance of a particular market, such as the performance of the FTSE 100 Index.
