The Gross rate is the contractual rate of interest payable before deduction of income tax at the rate specified by law.

The Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) is a notional rate which illustrates what the gross interest rate would be if interest was paid and added to the account annually. AERs on an account which pays monthly interest assumes interest is added to the account at the end of each month during the year. In practice, the option to have interest added in this way is not available on our monthly interest accounts

Annual £1+ 0.50 (Base rate + 0.25)
Monthly £1+ 0.50 (Base rate + 0.25)

Interest rate tracks the Bank of England base rate, currently 0.25%, plus 0.25% until 14th December 2017. You can keep track of the Bank of England base rate here.

We calculate interest on the balance of your account at the end of each day. You earn interest from the day your funds are paid into your account, until the day before you withdraw your funds.

Annual interest is paid on 31st December. Monthly interest is paid on the last day of each month.

Can The Cambridge change the interest rate?

The interest rate is guaranteed to track any changes in the Bank of England base rate within one month of a Bank of England announcement. We will notify you of any changes to your interest rate within 14 days of the change.

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

The following projection assumes the account is opened on 1st January and no further deposits or withdrawals are made and interest is paid annually. Projections are for illustrative purposes only and do not take into account individual circumstances.
