Bonds

Invest for the future with lump sum deposits to make the most of higher interest rates. Choose from a range of terms and benefit from the higher interest rates that locking away your money or making lump sum deposits can bring.

If the balance falls below the minimum operating balance, the basic savings rate of interest, which is currently 0.05% Gross p.a./AER (variable), shall apply.
