What would the estimated balance be after 24 months based on a £1000 deposit?Assuming that £1,000 is deposit into the account at the time it is opened, and no further withdrawals are made, then based on an interest rate of 1.20% you will receive a £24.14 interest payment at the end of the fixed terms (31 March 2019), giving an overall account balance of £1,024.14.
