Don't have time to chase the best savings rates?

People told us they didn’t. They just want consistently good returns without any stress.

So we launched Active Savings, a revolution in managing your savings. You can pick and mix savings products from a range of UK banks and building societies through one simple to use online account.

Say goodbye to the hassle of opening accounts with multiple providers – completing application forms and proving your identity each time. Just a selection of great rates from multiple banking partners, all in one place.

£12M+

£12 million+

Interest earnt by Active Savings clients. So what could this mean for a savings pot of £35,000?

You could be £277 better off with easy access, compared to the average market rate, and £193 better off on a 1-year fix.

Figures are correct as of 12 February and are based on average market rates of 0.41% for instant access and 1.03% for a 1 year fix, compared with 1.20% for easy access and 1.58% for a 1 year fix available through Active Savings. Products are added and withdrawn frequently so the rates available are subject to change.

Source: Bank of England and rates currently available through Active Savings. For this comparison we’ve compared instant access rates with easy access. The difference between the two is that you may need to wait a short period of time to access your funds in easy access due to the withdrawal process.

What difference could a new rate make to your savings?

Please note this calculator assumes the interest rate doesn’t change, no further deposits or withdrawals are made and that interest is paid and compounded once each year. It also does not take into account the different types of savings products available with Active Savings. The value of your savings will depend upon personal circumstances, the rates available and options you choose.
