Term Deposit Account (Personal)
Cater Allen offers Fixed Term Deposit accounts for personal clients with savings of £50,000 or more. Our term lengths are between 3 months and 36 months, with an interest rate that is fixed on the day of deposit.
Interest rates are fixed on the day of deposit and on the basis that you place a deposit immediately. If you are not placing your deposit on that day the rates quoted are only indicative. We only accept deposits to a Term Deposit account via electronic transfer. Your current provider may charge you for this service. If a payment is being sent from abroad, there will be a charge depending on the currency and where it has been sent from. Please see our banking tariff for details. No withdrawals/closures are permitted during the fixed term. However, should there be extenuating circumstances, early withdrawal/closure will be considered, at the complete discretion of Cater Allen Limited. In these instances your account will only be credited with the capital. In the event of the death of the holder of the account, the capital will be repaid with interest earned to date.
We offer a choice of options at maturity which you must provide to us via the Maturity Options Form, which you will receive 2 weeks before your Term Deposit matures:
- an instruction can be given for us to roll over the deposit, together with accrued interest, into another fixed term at the then applicable rate;
- the capital alone can be rolled-over into a new Term Deposit with the accrued interest paid into a pre-nominated bank account;
- both capital and accrued interest can be transferred into a pre-nominated bank account;
- if we have received repayment instructions from you, your deposit will be sent by electronic transfer into a bank account in your name. A fee may be payable for this, please see our banking tariff for details;
- all written instructions for maturing Term Deposits should be made using the Term Deposit Maturity Options Form.
Please see the Term Deposit Account Fact Sheet for more information.
Available fixed rates can be found on our Interest rates page.
