The Co-operative Bank Increases Interest Rate On One And Two Year Fixed Rate Isas

2 March 2017

2 min read

The Co-operative Bank is today, (Thursday, 2 March, 2017) increasing the interest rate it offers on its one and two year fixed rate ISA products providing a more attractive return for those looking to make the most of their tax free savings allowance towards the end of the 2016/17 tax year.

The bank is now offering a one year fixed rate ISA at 0.95 per cent AER and a two year fixed rate ISA at 1.05 per cent AER, to complement the existing range of tax free savings accounts that include an online cash ISA and standard cash ISA.

Savers can deposit from £5,000 to £15,240 utilising this year’s tax allowance, or they can open an account from £1 if transferring previous year’s ISA funds. The products are designed for those who are happy to make a lump sum deposit for a one and two year period. No further deposits are allowed into the account once the product has been withdrawn from sale. Withdrawals can be made from the account before the account reaches maturity but savers will lose 180 days’ worth of interest on the amount withdrawn.

Stuart Beattie, Head of Savings and Business Banking at The Co-operative Bank, said: “We’re pleased to offer savers a competitive rate of return on our range of fixed rate ISAs, to complement our existing Cash ISA products. With The Co-operative Bank, savers can be reassured that their money will not be put to use in a way which conflicts with our Values and Ethics Policy, which has been shaped by our customers.”

The Co-operative Bank is the only UK high street bank with a customer- led ethical policy and, as part of our ethical banking commitment, we will not bank organisations who fail to meet our ethical criteria - for example, those who do not uphold basic human rights or whose activities significantly contribute to harming the habitat of endangered animal species, among other things.
