Product Summary

Account name

12 Month Fixed Rate

What is the interest rate?

This is a term deposit, paying a fixed rate of interest.

The current interest rate on this account pays 4.7% AER* / 4.7% Gross**.

Interest is calculated daily and paid on maturity.

Can Sainsbury's Bank change the interest rate?

No, this rate is fixed for the duration of your deposit.

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

At current interest rates:
A deposit of £1,000.00 would earn £48.03 in interest after 1 Year, for a final balance of £1,048.03.
A deposit of £5,000.00 would earn £240.13 in interest after 1 Year, for a final balance of £5,240.13.

These are illustrative examples and are not based on your individual circumstances. The examples assume that you put the full amount in upon opening the account and do not make any withdrawals by maturity in 1 Year.

How do I open and manage my account?

Prosper have partnered with Akoni to bring you this product. Akoni handles all the account opening on your behalf. As long as you have the minimum deposit amount of £50,000.00 available to deposit, you simply instruct Akoni via your cash dashboard. Once you have confirmed this step Akoni will instruct the deposit with Santander International (UK) and transfer the funds from your Hub account. The maximum balance you can instruct for this savings account is £25,000,000.00. If you have not already done so you will be asked to complete a digital application. This will only be required the first time you place a deposit via any of the banks Akoni works with. To access and manage this account, including withdrawals and placing of additional funds, you must do this via tha Akoni dashboard or by calling our customer service team. It is not possible to manage this account via Santander International (UK)'s online banking or via their customer channels even if you are an existing customer.

Can I withdraw money?

This is a fixed term deposit so withdrawal of funds before maturity is not usually possible. Earlier withdrawal, breaking the term commitment may be possible in exceptional circumstances and may be subject to additional charges or penalties.

Additional information

Interest / Tax

* AER (Annual Equivalent Rate) illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once a year. AER is intended to help you easily compare the return available on different savings products. Interest will be paid gross.

** Gross rate is the interest payable without taking account of any tax payable.

We pay all savings interest gross, with no tax deducted. It is the depositors sole responsibility to pay any tax due to interest income.

You can get professional tax advice, or find more information on the HMRC website.

Savings products can be withdrawn at any time and without notice.

Deposit Guarantee protection

The deposits placed with the bank or building society via Akoni, as a Deposit Aggregator, are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, which is the UK’s deposit guarantee scheme. This means your eligible deposits are protected up to a total of £85,000 per authorised entity. If your total deposits within the same institution are above that limit, they are unlikely to be covered i.e. if you have money in multiple accounts with the same bank or with banks that are part of the same banking group (and share a banking license) the FSCS treat them as one bank. This means the FSCS compensation limit of £85,000 applies to the total amount you hold across all these accounts, not each separate account.

FSCS protections are limited to “Eligible Claimants” as per the FCA definitions. For more information, please visit https://www.fscs.org.uk or watch “How FSCS protects your money”.

Please also note that the FSCS will pay these claims as soon as possible, and always within three months, in the event that the bank or building society fails. More information on this can be found at https://www.fscs.org.uk/what-we-cover/banks-building-societies/.
