Key product information

How it works

With the Loyalty Cash ISA, we reward you for your loyalty as long as you pay at least £1 into your ISA each year. This exclusive variable loyalty rate applies for 12 months* from the date of each payment.

If you make further payments into your ISA, your loyalty rate period will begin again from the date of each payment. Upon the expiry of your Loyalty rate period, you will earn a standard rate of interest until you make a further payment.

You can start your ISA savings with any amount from £1 and you could subscribe up to £20,000 this tax year.
