Fixed Rate Bond - Issue 227.

What is the interest rate?

5.25% AER†/gross pa fixed for 2 years. Interest is calculated daily, compounded annually and paid on maturity.

†AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. Gross is the rate of interest if interest were paid and not compounded each year.

Interest is calculated daily from the day of receipt in the case of a deposit by cash or transfer and from the following day of receipt in the case of a deposit by cheque. Interest shall accrue up to the maturity date

Can Hanley Economic Building Society change the interest rate?

The interest on this account is fixed for the term of the Fixed Rate Bond and cannot be changed.

What would the estimated balance be on maturity with a £10,000 deposit?

Based on the interest rate, if you deposited £1,000 in this account, on maturity you would have £1,107.76. This figure is for illustration purposes and is based on no additional deposits during the term of the bond. For illustrative purposes only and does not take into account individual circumstance.
