HSBC Fixed Rate Bonds

HSBC fixed rate bonds offer a guaranteed rate of interest on your savings so you know what return you will receive while you save for a set period of time. HSBC fixed rate bonds may offer different terms, and different rates, which may increase for larger deposits and longer terms. Minimum deposits may apply.

Choose HSBC fixed rate bonds and you could get:

  • A choice of fixed terms – 3 or 6 months, or 1, 2, or 3 years
  • Interest paid monthly or annually
  • The option to open more than one bond
  • Guaranteed returns on your investments

Our View:

As with most high street banks currently , the rates offered to savers on a fixed term basis are not market leading.

E.g. You can currently get more than double the interest on a 6 month fixed with Wyelands Bank. For a 1 year fixed rate HSBC offer a respectable 1.6% AER however Ford Money are paying 2% AER on their market leading account. On a 2 year fix, Ford Money will offer 2.22% AER compared to HSBC’s rate of 1.80% AER. For 3 year rates you can enjoy a rate of 2.36% AER from RCI Bank compared to HSBC who offer 2% AER.

As with all fixed rate bonds, early closure will normally be subject to a fee, such as an interest charge, so it is best to ensure you will not need access to funds in a HSBC fixed rate bond before depositing your savings.

See the table above to compare latest fixed rates and alternative cash plans.
