The calculations shown include the total amount of interest earned as part of your total savings and include compound interest.

What is the interest rate? Interest is payable on this account. The Wealthify Instant Access Savings Account interest rate is based on the Bank of England base rate. The interest rate is variable and tracks at a margin of 0.45% (gross) below the Bank of England base rate ("Tracking Rate"). The current interest rate is 4.91% AER / 4.80% gross p.a. (variable). To monitor the Bank of England base rate visit www.bankofengland.co.uk.

Wealthify reserves the right to vary the interest rate depending on market conditions. For a full list of reasons for an interest rate change, see our Terms and Conditions.

Interest is accumulated daily based on the cleared funds in your account (as determined by ClearBank). This interest is then paid monthly on a gross basis.

ClearBank will pay the interest accumulated within the calendar month directly to your Savings Account within 3 working days of that month's end.

If you close your Savings Account mid-month, ClearBank will calculate the interest up until the day before you close your account, before paying it into your account.

Your Savings Account won’t be closed until the remaining balance is sent to your nominated bank account.
Can Wealthify change the interest rate? The rate will automatically track the Bank of England base rate, minus a margin, currently 0.45%. Wealthify also reserve the right to vary the margin in line with the Terms and Conditions.

No notice is required if we’re decreasing the size of the margin (passing more interest on to you). We will, however, provide 14 days’ notice if we’re increasing the size of our margin (passing less interest on to you). When moving in line with Bank of England base rate changes (either up or down), no notice is required.

Savings Account Tips and Insights

What is the base rate, and what does it mean for you?

"Picture your savings as your financial safety net: your go-to for short-term emergencies and immediate peace of mind.

"In the meantime, the Bank of England's base rate (the interest rate it sets out for banks and financial institutions to control inflation) remains high. Typically, a high interest rate is bad for borrowing but great for savers — although many high street banks have failed to pass much of these higher rates to consumers.

"The Wealthify Instant Access Savings Account gives you the comfort of knowing your savings are working hard for you. Combining a variable interest rate, the flexibility to save at a level that suits you, and freedom to withdraw funds whenever you need them; Wealthify is now a great place to manage both your cash savings and investments."
