A new cash savings service

Our clients told us they don’t have time to chase the best rates - they just want consistently good returns without teaser rates and without any stress.

With Active Savings you can pick and mix fixed term savings products from a range of UK banks and building societies through one simple to use online account.

And we’re working hard to bring you greater control in future, with easy access savings, a Cash ISA and much more.

One application

gives access to several products . Get started from £1,000.

One account

to easily check what rates you're receiving and see what's new, so you're always in control.

One login

lets you move money around between banks with just a few clicks, without any forms or fuss.

All products and rates

The table below shows all of the savings products available today through Active Savings. You'll find out more about these products once you've opened an Active Savings Account. Products and rates do change regularly so make sure you keep an eye on the 'apply by' date. Products available can be added or withdrawn at any time.

At the moment, we only offer fixed term savings products, giving you peace of mind that your rate is guaranteed. But remember, with fixed term savings, you can't withdraw your money until the term has ended. At present, you can't save in an ISA or SIPP, but we hope to offer this in future.

What do AER and Gross mean?

AER (Annual Equivalent Rate)
Shows what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. It helps you compare the interest rates on different savings products.

Gross
The interest rate without any tax removed. Interest is paid gross. You are responsible for paying any tax due on interest that exceeds your Personal Savings Allowance to HM Revenue & Customs.

Interest rates may be subject to change and depend on individual circumstances.

Are there any charges?

We don’t charge you directly, instead we charge the banks and building societies up to 0.25% of balances held per year. This means the same or similar products offered directly by the banks and building societies may have different interest rates to those available on Active Savings.

Will my savings be protected?

Eligible deposits are protected up to £85,000 per banking licence. Any deposits over £85,000 with the same bank are not likely to be covered. All of our partner banks are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

What our clients have to say about Active Savings

The big advantage is not having to go through the pain of applying for yet another bank account which then drops its rates after 12 months.
