A more flexible way to save

When it comes to saving, it’s important to go at your own pace. Our Easy Access Accounts allow you to save for your goals, without restricting access to your money when you need it. What’s more, they have competitive interest rates, so you’ll still grow your savings over time.

What do you get with an OakNorth Easy Access Account?

Next-day access to your funds

You can access your money as and when you choose. You aren’t charged for withdrawals, and they won’t impact your interest rate.

No hidden fees

You’ll earn money from us, and we won’t take any fees from you. It’s as simple as that.

 

Low minimum deposit

We won’t make you deposit a large sum just to create an account. You can open an OakNorth Easy Access Account with as little as £1.

Not the right account for you?

An Easy Access Account favours flexibility over high interest rates. If you’re willing to lock your savings away without immediate access, you could earn more with a Fixed Term Savings account or a Notice Savings Account.
