Fixed Rate eSavings Bond to 30/04/2021

What is the interest rate?

The interest rate is fixed at 1.40% Gross/AER.

Interest is calculated daily and paid on maturity. Interest can be added to the Bond account or paid to a nominated bank account or other suitable Furness account. 

Can Furness Building Society change the interest rate?

As the interest rate is fixed, the rate will not change for the term of the account.

What would the estimated balance be the end of the fixed rate period based on a £1,000 deposit?

Based on the fixed rate of interest, if you deposited £1,000 in this account on 1 August 2019, at the end of the term the maturity balance would be £1,024.51.

This figure is for illustration purposes only and is based on annual interest being added to the account on maturity.

Financial Services Compensation Scheme - We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a building society is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors - including most individuals and small businesses - are covered by the scheme.

An eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000. For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor’s accounts with the building society, including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.

For further information about the scheme (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please ask at your local branch, refer to the FSCS website www.FSCS.org.uk or call 020 7892 7300 or 0800 678 1100.

  1. The holder and any beneficiary owner of the deposit have never been identified in accordance with money laundering requirements. For further information, contact your bank, building society or credit union
  2. The deposit arises out of transactions in connection with which there has been a criminal conviction for money laundering
  3. It is a deposit made by a depositor which is one of the following:

         • Credit Institution
