Grow your savings with a Fixed Term Savings Account
With interest rates up to 2.73% and terms ranging from 6-60 months, save for your future with a Fixed Term Savings Account that works for you.
Whether you’re already a long-time saver or at the start of your savings journey, a Fixed Term Savings Account can help your money grow, so you can reach your long-term goals.
A Fixed Term Savings Account, sometimes referred to as a Fixed-Term Deposits Account or a Fixed Bond Account, allows you to lock away a sum of money for an agreed time period.
This could be six months, nine months, 12 months or up to five years – the longer you lock it up, the more interest you earn. It’s important to know that once you’ve put your savings away, you won’t be able to access them until the end of the agreed time period. So, make sure you choose the right account that works for you.

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

Interest is calculated daily from the business day your funds are received and applied to your OakNorth Bank Account balance on the maturity date of your account.
No. The interest rate is fixed during the term.
*These are only examples for illustrative purposes and do not take into account your individual circumstances.
These estimates assume that the account remains open for the duration of the stated term, deposits are made in a single payment, and interest is accrued daily and applied to the account on the maturity date of your account.
Our accounts are available to individuals, aged 18 or over, who are UK residents (i.e. England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland). Also, you must have a personal UK bank or building society account that allows transfers to be made to and from it.
Applications to open an account must be completed through our website here or via the OakNorth mobile banking app. Please note, joint accounts can only be opened through our online application on the website and not through the mobile app; the maximum number of account holders in a joint account is two.
The minimum deposit required to open your account is £1. The maximum deposit you may pay into any one account with us is £500,000. The maximum amount (excluding the interest) that you will be allowed to hold on deposit with us across multiple accounts is also £500,000. For a joint account (joint accounts can only be opened through our online application on the website and not through the mobile app) this means that the maximum amount allowed to be held would be £1,000,000 i.e. £500,000 per account holder.
You can fund your account with multiple deposit payments within 14 calendar days from the day your account is approved. The minimum deposit is £1.

No, our Fixed Term Deposit Accounts do not allow for funds to be withdrawn during the term of the deposit. We may at our discretion allow it in cases of hardship at our sole discretion, which would require suitable documentary evidence. Interest will be calculated on the total amount until, but not including the day of the withdrawal
We will contact you before the account matures to inform you of the options available for your maturing funds.
30 days and 14 days before your account matures, we will send you an email providing you a choice of options as follows:

If you’ve chosen your account, apply online or through the OakNorth app. You’ll be asked to select the account you want to open and fill out a few details.
