Summary Box
Account Name
Vanquis Bank Savings - 4 Year Fixed Rate Bond
What is the interest rate?
Annual Gross*/AER**

4.60% (Fixed for 4 Years)

This rate is based on interest being paid on either:
  • the anniversary of the date we received your first payment into your account; or
  • on the day your account closes, if earlier.
Interest is calculated daily. When you open the account you will be able to choose whether you would like interest to be paid each month or annually. You will also be able to choose whether you would like interest to be paid into your account or transferred to your nominated account.
Monthly Gross*/ AER**

4.51% or 4.60% (Fixed for 4 Years)

This rate is based on interest being paid each month on:
  • the monthly anniversary of us receiving your first payment into your account; and
  • the date your account closes.
Can Vanquis Bank change the interest rate?
No. The interest rate for this account is fixed so we can't change it during the fixed term period.
What would the estimated balance be after 48 months based on a £1,000 deposit?
Interest paid annually

Balance at end of term would be £1,197.09

Based on:
  • an annual interest rate of 4.60% (Fixed for 4 Years); and
  • a deposit of £1,000
Interest paid monthly

Balance at end of term would be £1,197.09

Based on:
  • a monthly interest rate of 4.51% (Fixed for 4 Years); and
  • a deposit of £1,000
The amount above shows what the future balance of your account would be if:
  • the interest is paid into your account rather than transferred to your nominated account; and
  • you keep your money in the account until the end of the fixed term.
