Electronic transfers start earning interest the first full day after we've received them. For details of when money paid in by cheque starts earning interst please refer to our cheque clearing calculator. Please note, cash deposits are not allowed.

You can make a withdrawal at any time by simply writing a cheque. Alternatively you can request an electronic transfer. Please remember that cheque withdrawals must be authorised by the specified number of mandated signatories on the account. Cash withdrawals are not allowed on this account.

PortfolioInvestor does not offer an overdraft or credit facilities. Before making a withdrawal please ensure there are sufficient funds in your account.

Interest is calculated daily and will be paid into the account on the first day of March, June, September and December. When your balance reaches a higher interest tier you will receive that rate of interest on your entire balance. Please note that the interest rate is variable.
