MARKET LEADING INTEREST RATES BOOSTED ON TWO DEPOSIT ACCOUNTS FOR CHARITIES

29 March 2019

The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) has launched two new product issues and increased the rates on two of their deposit accounts to provide even greater value for charities.  One of the rates is market leading and both are exclusive to charities. 

The 60 Day Notice account and 12 Month Fixed Rate Saver account are provided in partnership with Shawbrook Bank, and have changed so that:

  • The 12 Month Fixed Rate Saver account’s annual rate of interest increases from 1.30% to 1.40%
  • The 60 Day Notice account’s annual rate of interest increases from 0.80% to 0.90%

The 12 Month Fixed Rate Saver account is now the joint highest rate for that term which is available to charities only, and the 60 Day Notice account is a market leading rate in the same sector at this term. The rate changes come into effect on Friday 29th March.

Bridgit Richards, Director of Product & Marketing at CAF comments:

“We’re thrilled to enhance the offering that our charity customers receive for both of these accounts. As a result, charities opening a new issue of either the 12 Month Fixed Rate Saver or 60 Day Notice Account will now receive greater long term returns on their deposits with us.

“In the  historically low interest rate environment, we are very  keen to provide competitive deposit options for charities, irrespective of whether they’re investing smaller or more significant amounts.”
