Product update: fixed rate bonds and e-bonds

6 November 2015

From today, Friday 6 November, Nationwide Building Society is launching new issues of its fixed rate bonds and e-bonds.

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

  • Six-month Fixed Rate Bond and e-Bond paying 1.00% gross p.a./AER
  • One-year Fixed Rate Bond and e-Bond paying 1.50% gross p.a./AER
  • Two-year Fixed Rate Bond and e-Bond paying 1.70% gross p.a./AER
  • Three-year Fixed Rate Bond and e-Bond paying 1.90% gross p.a/AER

Monthly interest options are also available for all Nationwide’s fixed rate bonds and e-bonds.

The previous issues of the Society’s fixed rate bonds and e-bonds were withdrawn from sale at the close of business on Thursday 5 November.

Notes to Editors

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and 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 the Nationwide Savings Promises, the Society guarantees its Fixed Rate ISA rates will match or beat its equivalent Bond rates.
