MARKET TRACKER CASH ISA (2)

We believe our Market Tracker Cash ISA gives you a fairer way to save. Rather than offering a rate of interest that starts out looking good but falls off a cliff when your back is turned, it gives you a consistently competitive return on your savings.

The Market Tracker Cash ISA key features are:

  • Tax-free interest

  • Easy access to your savings

  • Add to your savings* by post, direct credit from your bank account or by visiting our Epsom branch

  • Interest rate may go down as well as up

  • Save from £500 up to £100,000

  • Minimum withdrawal £100

  • Withdrawals, closure and transfer to another ISA provider without an access charge or loss of interest

  • Transfers from flexible and non-flexible Cash ISAs are accepted

  • Consistently competitive interest rate, avoiding the need to have to shop around regularly

* You can add to your savings by debit card using our Online Service, by bank transfer, or by cheque. To send additional savings directly from your bank account the banking details you’ll need can be found on the back of your new account Certificate. To add to your account using your debit card you will need to register for our Online Service if you are not already a user for an existing account with us. You can register once you have received your new account Certificate. For security reasons the activation code required for your first log-in after registration is sent to you by post.

    The information provided below is a summary of the key features of the account and is not intended to be a substitute for reading the Product Features leaflet and General Conditions for our Savings Accounts booklet.
