With a Notice savings account you can earn high interest rates without locking up your money for a set time period. Unlike Fixed Term savings accounts, you just need to let us know in advance when you need access to your funds. The notice you need to give will depend on the account you have. We’ve got 35, 90 and 120 days accounts to choose from. You can deposit funds whenever you choose, up to a maximum of £500,000 across all of your accounts.
You’re not restricted to a set amount of withdrawals. As long as you give us the right notice, we’ll give you full access to your funds.
You’ll earn money from us, and we won’t take any fees from you. It’s as simple as that.
You can open an OakNorth Notice savings account with just £1.
