  • Can Investec change the interest rate?

    Yes, the interest rate is variable. For details on how the rate can change, go to the Banking Relationship Agreement, which canbe found at www.investec.com/termsandconditions (Section 9).

  • What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £10,000 deposit?

    At current interest rates a deposit of £10,000 would generate an interest of £139.89 after 12 months. This would provide a final balance of £10,139.89.
     
    If at any time the balance falls below £10,000 a reduced interest rate of 0.10% gross p.a.^(variable)/AER* would be paid.  A balance of £5,000 would generate an interest of £5 after 12 months. This would provide a final balance of £5,005.00.
     
    Both examples above are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not based on individual circumstances.
     
    These illustrations also assume that the initial balance remains unchanged and that no withdrawals and no further deposits are made in this period. They also assume interest is paid into an Investec E-asy Access Account.
