What is the interest rate?
- These rates are effective from 4th June 2020 and are fixed until the end of your product term.
- All interest is paid gross and can be added to your account or paid into a nominated account held in your name.
- For monthly interest products, interest is typically paid on the day of the month you opened your account. For annual interest products with a term of 1 year or longer, it is paid on the anniversary of account opening and for those with a term of less than 1 year, it is paid at the end of the term.
- ‘AER' means ‘annual equivalent rate' and is designed to make it easy for you to compare savings products. It tells you how much interest you'd earn if you put some money in an account and left it there for a full year. It takes account of things like how often the interest is paid and assumes any interest paid during that year is added to the balance and earns interest.
- ‘Gross' is the rate of interest that’s payable on this account and represents the amount of tax-free interest you'll earn in a year.
Can Atom bank change the interest rate?
No. The interest rate on your Fixed Saver will stay the same until the end of the product term.
What would the estimated balance be after 6 months based on a £1,000 deposit?
|6 Month Fixed Saver||£1,004.01|
