18 Month Fixed Term Deposit
What is the expected profit rate?
1.35% (gross per annum)
Your profit is calculated monthly and will be paid quarterly to your nominated account or, you have the option to retain the deposit profit in your account to be paid all together on maturity.
Can Al Rayan Bank change the expected profit rate?
The expected profit rate is agreed at the outset. If for any reason we are not able to achieve the expected (target) profit rate, we will give you the option to close your account. If you choose to close your account, we will return your funds, along with the profit accrued on your deposit up until the date of termination.
What would the estimated balance be after 18 months based on a £5,000 deposit?
If on account opening you deposited £5,000 into your 18 Month Fixed Term Deposit Account the estimated balance on the maturity of your account would be £5,102.11

You will not be able to close the account or withdraw any of your funds before the date of maturity. During the fixed term, you cannot add additional funds to your account.

If on application you nominated an account into which your maturity balance should be paid, and we can confirm those details with you on maturity, we will pay your maturity balance into the nominated account. Otherwise, we will open an Al Rayan Bank instant access savings account for you, and you will be able to withdraw your funds when you wish.
We will write to you in advance of the maturity of your account to confirm what you would like us to do.
