1 Year Fixed Rate Bond

Why Choose a 1 Year Fixed Rate Bond?

If you want to invest £5,000 or more and have the peace of mind that your money will grow, read on. This account gives you the reassurance of a fixed rate of return until a fixed end date, so you’ll know exactly how much interest your money will be earning.

This is a practical choice if you don’t want to put your money away for several years, as the term is only 12 months from the day you open it (please note you can’t add to the bond after your initial investment or withdraw your money until the term is up.)

This could be the account for you if you’re looking for:

  • A guaranteed fixed rate of interest for 12 months
  • Reassurance that your money will grow
  • An account where you can invest £5,000 or more (up to £300,000)

Can Hinckley & Rugby Building Society change the interest rate?

The interest rate is fixed and cannot be changed during the one year term.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £5,000 deposit?

At the expiry of the one year fixed rate term the estimated balance, based on an initial deposit of £5,000, would be £5,070.

Assuming that no further deposits or withdrawals are made and there is no change in the interest rate, after a further one year term, the estimated balance would be £5,095.35.

These figures are provided for illustrative purposes only and do not take into account your individual circumstances.

Can I withdraw money?

Withdrawals are not permitted until maturity of the fixed rate term.

Subject to the conditions set out above, money can be paid out against a cheque from the start of the sixth business day following the day of deposit. Business day means a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday. Funds are available for immediate withdrawal for all other types of deposit.

Additional information

Interest is paid gross without tax deducted. With effect from 6 April 2016, most people no longer pay tax on savings income.  Ask for a copy of A guide to the Personal Savings Allowance produced by HM Revenue & Customs for further details.

Gross rate – the annual rate of interest to be paid on a savings account without any deduction being made in respect of personal Income Tax liability.
AER – stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added once each year.

Interest is calculated on a daily basis up to and including the day before any withdrawal. For cheque receipts, interest is paid from the day after the cheque is deposited with us. For cash and automated credits, interest is paid from the day of receipt.

Each year on 1 December the interest earned will be credited to your 1 Year Fixed Rate Bond. Alternatively it can be paid to a bank or building society account, or transferred to another account with the Society.

We will write to you before the end of the one year term to advise you that your account is about to mature.  Unless we have received alternative instructions from you, after one year your 1 Year Fixed Rate Bond will automatically revert to an Easy Access Bank Base Rate Tracker.
