Fixed Rate Cash Offers
We regularly offer our clients fixed-rate deals. You can earn a competitive interest rate on the cash in your SIPP, provided you leave the money in cash for three or six months. To find out about future offers, please register your interest.
Below are the next Vantage SIPP Fixed Rate Cash Offers. We have a fixed tranche of money available for each offer which is allocated to investors on a first come, first served basis.
Before investing please read the Key Features of the SIPP Fixed Rate Cash Offer:
|Term||Opened for subscription||Closes for subscription||No. of days interest||
(starting 15/11/2013, maturing 14/02/2014)
(starting 15/11/2013, maturing 16/05/2014)
We ask our clients to maintain a minimum cash balance of £10,000 in their account to cover any short term trading needs. Cash over and above this amount can be switched into our fixed rate offers. The minimum investment is £1,000.
Please remember, you won't be able to invest the money or use it to provide retirement benefits for the term you choose, so please only invest money you are certain you won't need in the interim. Please don't choose a Fixed Rate Cash Offer if you are planning to retire during the term.
You'll earn interest at our standard variable rate until the start of the fixed offer term. The interest from these fixed rate offers will be credited, and the capital available to reinvest, on the date of maturity - at which stage you'll start to earn interest at our normal variable rates on any uninvested cash.
How to apply for a Fixed Rate Cash Offer
Before investing please read the Key Features of the Fixed Rate Cash Offer.
To invest existing money, log in to your account and select your Vantage SIPP, click on the Cash tab, select the Fixed Rates option and follow the on-screen instructions.
Standard variable interest
If you want to have some cash in your SIPP ready to invest, you can earn tax-free interest at our variable rate. The higher the cash balance, the higher the interest you earn.
Base rate since 05/03/2009: 0.5%. All rates are variable unless stated otherwise.
|Account Balance||Gross % for this tier only†||Net % for this tier only†||AER % for this tier only†|
|£7,000 - £49,999.99||0.05||0.04||0.05|
|£1,000 - £6,999.99||0.05||0.04||0.05|
|£0 - £999.99||0.00||0.00||0.00|
† Note: Interest is tiered within bands so you will currently receive 0% on the first £999.99, 0.05% (gross) on the amount above £1,000 and below £49,999.99 and 0.10% on balances above £50,000. These tiered rates should not be directly compared to the AER, gross or net interest rates of accounts which are not tiered or have a different tier structure.
If you hold cash balances in more than one Vantage account (i.e. a Vantage Stocks & Shares ISA and a Vantage Fund & Share Account) these will be considered separately when calculating the tiered interest.

A SIPP is a type of pension for people happy to make their own investment decisions. Investments go down in value as well as up so you could get back less than you invest. The rules mentioned are those currently applying and could change in the future. You can normally only access the money from age 55. Tax reliefs depend on your circumstances. This website is not personal advice, if you are unsure an investment is right for you, please seek advice.
