    Gross - this means the interest rate you are paid before the deduction of basic rate income tax

    Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) - this is a notional rate used for interest bearing accounts, which illustrates the interest rate if paid and compounded each yeaar. It helps you to compare the effective rates of credit interest on different acounts.

    All rates are subject to variation.

  • Past performance should not be taken as a guide to future performance.

    The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up, and you may not recover the amount of your original investment.

    Where an investment involves exposure to a foreign currency, changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of the investment, and the income from it, to go up or down.

    Investments in emerging markets are subject to certain special risks, which include, for example, a certain degree of political instability, relatively unpredictable financial market trends and economic growth patterns, a financial market that is still in the development stage and a weak economy. 

    Any tax reliefs referred to on this website are those available under current legislation, which may change, and their availability and value will depend on your individual circumstances.

    In the case of some investments, you should be aware that there is no recognised market for them and that it may therefore be difficult for you to deal in them or to obtain reliable information about their value or the extent of the risks to which they are exposed.

    Certain investments carry a higher degree of risk than others and are, therefore, unsuitable for some investors. Before contemplating any transaction, you should consider whether you require financial advice, please contact your relationship manager.

    With regard to currency accounts, there is an exchange rate risk if the currency is not the depositor’s reference currency.

  • This is an execution only dealing service. We will not provide investment advice to you under this service.

    How long will it take?

    Taking the day of receipt as the first business day, our aim is to contact you within two business days. We will address your concerns as soon as possible and within our regulatory guidelines. 

    Five days

    If we have been unable to resolve your complaint with you by the end of the fourth business day, we will write to you within five business days to:

    • acknowledge receipt of your complaint;
    • tell you who is dealing with your complaint;
    • tell you how long we expect to take to resolve it.

    Responding to your concerns

    Should your concerns take us longer to resolve than we initially anticipated, we will contact you to update you on progress.

    Within eight weeks

    We will generally send you a ‘final response’ letter. This will clearly set out the Bank’s position with regard to your complaint and we will also provide a leaflet advising you how to contact the Financial Ombudsman to review your complaint if you are not happy with our resolution. You will receive a copy of their leaflet and will have six months from the date of our 'final response' letter to ask them to carry out a review.

    In the Channel Islands you may ask the Financial Ombudsman to review your complaint if we have been unable to resolve it within three months.

    After eight weeks

    We appreciate that at times, your complaint may be particularly complex and on such occasions, it may take longer than eight weeks for us to come to a resolution. If this happens, we will write to you within the eighth week of your concerns being raised, to let you know why your complaint has not been fully resolved and what investigation has taken place.  We will also provide you with a timescale as to when you can expect a final response from us.
