Lisa Wood, Atom’s Chief Marketing Officer said “Launching our 3 and 6 month Fixed Savers allows customers to lock their cash away for a shorter period of time, but still at a great rate. Low interest rates and rising inflation mean savers have had a really tough time for a while now, but Atom is determined to offer a better alternative to that available from the traditional banks.
“We’re hoping that by having shorter-term products available, our great savings rates are opened up to a larger number of UK savers, not just those that are able to lock their money away for a significant period of time.
“Being purely digital, we are able to operate a lower cost model and pass these savings back through better rates, and as a UK licensed bank we offer FSCS protection on savings for up to £85k per person, to provide extra reassurance to our customers.”
Atom’s new breed of banking takes the hassle away and provides people with a fast, easy and secure service that is accessible through a smartphone or tablet. Customers can manage the whole savings process on their device browsing, opening and accessing all Fixed Savers via the Atom bank app. The app protects customers with pioneering banking security using biometric technology with both face and voice recognition.
New customers can download the Atom app from the Apple or Android Play stores to open their account in a few taps, or visit www.atombank.co.uk for more information.
