Can Cynergy Bank change the interest rate?

  • For funds earning a fixed rate of interest the interest rate is fixed for the entirety of the fixed term.
  • For funds earning a variable rate of interest the interest rate may change. If we change the interest rate to your advantage we may make the change immediately and will notify you within a reasonable time of the change taking effect. Where we make a change to the interest rate that is not to your advantage, we will notify you not less than 14 days before the change takes effect. Where the balance of your account is less than £100, we will not be required to give you notice ahead of making a change. Please see the ISA Conditions for further details.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months, based on a £1,000 deposit?

The estimated balances are based on interest being paid annually and added to the balance and assumes no further deposits or withdrawals are made. They are provided for illustrative purposes only and do not take into account a customer’s individual circumstances and any changes to the variable interest rate.

Can I withdraw money?

  • We hope you’re happy with your Cash ISA, however if you change your mind you can cancel it free of charge within 14 days of the start date of your Cash ISA. The right to cancel applies to new Cash ISAs, fixed term Cash ISAs and renewals.
  • After the 14 day cancellation period you are only entitled to withdraw funds in the following circumstances:
    • Fixed Rate: If you withdraw or close your account before the end of your fixed term you will be charged an early breakage fee. Fee-free withdrawals or account closure is permitted at the end of the fixed term. If you break the fixed term we will charge a fee equivalent to 180 days’ interest on the amount invested in the Fixed Term. This means if you close your Fixed Rate ISA within the first 180 days you may get back less than you originally deposited. Fixed rates are automatically renewed at the end of the fixed term for a further fixed term. We will write to you 14 days before the renewal date to remind you of your options.
    • Variable rate: You can make withdrawals at any time without notice or charge. At times, it may be necessary for your payment to be put through some additional security checks, to make sure it’s genuine. This means it might take a little longer than usual to reach its recipient. Please do not attempt to make the payment again while these checks are taking place.
  • Fixed rates are automatically renewed at the end of the fixed term for a further fixed term. We will write to you 14 days before the renewal date to remind you of your options.

Additional Information

Tax-free is the contractual rate of interest payable where interest is exempt from income tax.

The tax treatment and the rate of interest payable depend on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year.

We may periodically launch new savings product issues which are given designated issue numbers. Individual product issues each have their own interest rate, these may vary from the prior/proceeding issues; either upwards or downwards.

Whilst we strongly suggest customers frequently check our website to see the latest available issue. We may also periodically communicate with customers directly drawing your attention to other available products/rates. If you wish to open a new product issue / savings then you can apply through our website or Online Banking.
