4. The fixed rate of 2.75% AER/gross over 12 months is available to HSBC Bank Account customers who open a new Regular Saver account. Save between £25 and £250 per month by standing order from your HSBC Bank Account for a fixed term of 12 months. If you do not save £250 in any given month you can carry over any unused subscription to following months. Interest is calculated on the daily balance on your Regular Saver and we’ll pay this into your Regular Saver on the anniversary of your account being opened. For example, if you saved £250 every month for 12 months a total of £3000 will be paid in to your account during the 12 month term. At 2.75% you would earn approximately £44 interest (gross). Partial withdrawals are not allowed during the 12 month term. If you close your Regular Saver before the anniversary, we’ll pay interest at the same rate as we would apply to an equivalent amount held in our Flexible Saver account. You can only hold one Regular Saver account at any time. AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. This shows what the gross rate would be if interest was paid and compounded each year. All credit interest will be paid gross. Gross is the rate of interest if interest were paid and not compounded each year. Back to 'Overdraft charges'
