What would the estimated balance be after 36 months based on a deposit of £10,000? Based on an interest rate of 1.50% gross, the balance on a £10,000 deposit after 36 months would be £10,456.78. The illustrative example assumes no withdrawals, no changes to the fixed interest rate over the period and interest is paid at maturity for the 1-Year Fixed Rate and paid annually and compounded for the 3-Year Fixed Rate. (The illustrative examples do not take into account the individual circumstances of a customer)
Can Charity Bank change the interest rate? The interest rate is fixed and cannot be altered in accordance with Section 9 Changes to interest rates of our Terms for Organisations.
Managing your account: You can open your account online or by post. We will answer any questions directly by email, telephone or post.
What happens at maturity of the fixed-term? We will write to you before maturity to remind you of the date that your fixed-term ends. At maturity, you can either withdraw your funds to your Nominated Account, reinvest them in a new fixed-rate account or transfer them into an alternative Charity Bank account of your choice (subject to any specific account Terms). If you do not let us know what you wish to do by the maturity date, your account will automatically revert to an Ethical 40-Day Notice account and the managed interest rate will be confirmed to you in writing. The Ethical 40-Day Notice account is subject to the following condition: A signed letter giving 40 days’ notice is required for withdrawals and closures.
