Product Update: Bonds and ISAs

21 October 2016

Nationwide Building Society is today (Friday 21 October) launching new issues of its Fixed Rate ISAs, Bonds and e-Bonds.

The new rates for annual interest on balances of £1 or more are:

  • 1-year FRISA paying 0.80% AER tax-free (variable)
  • 2-year FRISA paying 0.90% AER tax-free (variable)
  • 1-year Fixed Rate Bond and e-Bond paying 0.80% gross p.a./AER
  • 2-year Fixed Rate Bond and e-Bond paying 0.90% gross p.a./AER

Monthly interest options are also available for all of Nationwide’s Fixed Rate Bonds, e-Bonds and Fixed Rate ISAs.

The previous issues of the above accounts were withdrawn from sale at the close of business on Thursday 20 October.

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate which illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest were paid and compounded once each year. The gross rate of interest is the interest rate payable before any income tax is deducted.

Parity on Fixed Rate Bonds and Fixed Rate ISAs

As part of Nationwide’s Savings Promises, the Society guarantees its Fixed Rate ISA rates will match or beat its equivalent Bond rates.
