During these uncertain times, we continue to review our savings products against the competition to ensure that they remain fair and balance the interests of both our savings and mortgage members as well as the Society’s funding requirements. We continue to see rates reduce across the sector which we must respond to and we have therefore made the difficult, but necessary, decision to reduce the interest rate on some of our savings accounts.
Outlined below is the details of all the rate changes made to our products and these changes will come into effect on 1st November 2020.
However, for any current existing 30 days notice and 90 days’ notice (issue 1) account customers, with accounts opened prior to 1st November 2020, the reduction in rates will occur on 1st December 2020 (30 days’ notice account) and 1st February 2021 (90 days’ notice issue 1 account).
|Account name||Existing rate||New rate|
|Cash ISA||0.50% AER||0.45% AER|
|18 Club – for existing account holders only||2.00% AER||1.75% AER|
|30 Days’ Notice||0.75% AER||0.55% AER|
|90 Days’ Notice (issue 1) – for existing account holders only||1.00% AER||0.65% AER|
We want to be clear and transparent to our members and allow you the necessary notice period to evaluate this. We have, and continue to, review the market and the current climate and we will do everything we can to help our members during this difficult period.
Thank you for saving with Harpenden Building Society.
