Summary Box

Account name: Savings Builder

What is the interest rate?

Interest is paid on the above tiers on a stepped basis which means you’ll earn a different rate on each portion of your balance within the above tiers. If, for example, you hold £11,000 in your account, and you have satisfied the regular saving condition, your interest rates for that monthly period will be: 1.50% on the first £10,000 and 0.45% on anything over £10,000. You can find details of the regular saving condition in the Additional information section. Interest is calculated daily and paid on the first business day of the month and at account closure. You’ll be able to see and access the interest in your account on the following day.

Can Isle of Man Bank change the interest rate?

Yes, these rates are variable. They may be changed for any of the reasons set out in Term 10.3 of the Personal Banking Account Terms and Fees, e.g. to take account of Bank of England base rate changes or changes in the rates paid by other banks. If the rates are going down we’ll give you at least 60 days’ notice. If they are going up, we’ll inform you before the change or shortly afterwards. Term 10.4 contains details of the notice we’ll give you.

How much could I earn?

£50 deposited every month: regular saving condition is met

£25 deposited every month: regular saving condition is not met

These are only examples and do not take into account your individual circumstances. They assume that no further deposits or withdrawals are made; there is no change to interest rates and tiers; and any interest earned stays in the account.

How do I open and manage my account?

  • You must be aged 16 years or over to open an account.
  • You must already have a current account with us, or apply for a current account with us at the same time as opening your savings account.
