If you’ve already got a Fixed Term Deposit with us that’s about to mature, you might be thinking about what to do with your funds.
If you’re wanting to reinvest all or just some of it, one of our Maturity Fixed Term Deposits could be an option for you, with interest rates of up to 4.93% gross / AER (annually).
We’ll offer an interest rate guarantee if you decide to take out a Maturity Fixed Term Deposit with us. This means that if our rates increase or decrease between the date we send out your maturity pack and the date your original Fixed Term Deposit matures, we'll give you the better rate — as long as we receive your reinvestment intentions before the maturity date.
Please note, if the interest rate on this page is different to the one in your maturity pack, you’ll automatically receive the higher rate if you decide to apply.
If you already have a Fixed Term Deposit with us, we'll post you a maturity pack about 4 weeks before its maturity date. In this pack, you’ll find:
