Schedule of interest - Effective 01 October 2022

Interest on your balance

The money we hold for you as part of our wealth management service is pooled with all other client money and held in client money bank accounts at a carefully selected panel of institutions.

Interest accrues daily and will be applied to your account once a quarter in arrears, unless the sum accrued during the quarter is less than £2.50 (or the foreign currency equivalent).

Other rates may be available depending on circumstances (for example, if your money is in a currency other than sterling or dollars) and such rates may be negative.

For details of other conditions that might affect your interest payments or diversification, please check our Terms of Business. If you have any questions, your Investment Manager will be happy to help.
