Key product information
How it works
You choose a deposit term for your Fixed Rate Saver - either 1 or 2 years
You can deposit anything from £2,000 to £1 million. The money is locked away in the savings account for the whole of the term.
The interest rate depends on the amount you deposit and the length of the term. As the rate is fixed in advance, you know exactly how much interest you will earn by the end of the term.
The interest is paid directly into your HSBC current or savings account - the same one you used to pay in your initial deposit.

What is the interest rate?
|2 years||£2,000+||0.35% AER / Gross
||0.30% AER / Gross
0.35% AER / Gross
0.30% AER / Gross
- interest is calculated daily and credited either monthly or annually.
- if you choose monthly interest, we'll pay interest on the monthly anniversary of your account being opened. If you choose annual interest, we'll pay it on the anniversary of your account being opened.
The interest is paid directly into your HSBC current or savings account - the same one you use to pay in your initial deposit.
Can HSBC change the interest rate?
No, once your account is opened the rate will remain fixed for the duration of your fixed rate period.
What would the estimated balance be at the end of the term based on a range of deposits?
|Term||Deposit||Interest rate||Balance at end of term|
|2 years||£2,000||0.35% AER / Gross
||0.30% AER / Gross
0.35% AER / Gross
|Balance at end of term||£2,014.00|
0.30% AER / Gross
|Balance at end of term||£2,006.00|
For the purpose of these calculations, it is assumed:-
- initial deposit of £2,000
- no further deposits
- no withdrawals
- no change to the interest rate during the fixed term
Projection provided for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account individual circumstances.
How do I open & manage my account?
- aged 7 years or over
- have an HSBC current account or savings account (excluding an ISA, Regular Savings Account or Basic Bank Account) which you must maintain for the duration of the fixed term
- if you are aged between 7 years and 15 years you will need your application signed by a parent or guardian
How to open the account:
- this account can be opened in sole or joint names
- open an account via Online Banking, or in branch
- only one deposit per Fixed Rate Saver
- the minimum deposit is £2,000
- the maximum deposit is £1,000,000
How to manage the account
- once opened, the account can be managed via online banking or the HSBC Mobile Banking app, where you can chat to us 24/7
- you can also manage the account via Telephone Banking or in branch
Can I withdraw money?
Deposits of £50,000 or over: You can't close the product or withdraw any money until the end of your fixed rate period.
Deposits under £50,000: You can withdraw all of the money and close the product early, for a fee of 90 days interest. You can't withdraw part of the money.
At the end of the fixed rate period your account will be closed and your funds and interest paid into the account they came from unless you have asked us to reinvest some/all of your funds.
Can I access funds from a Fixed Rate Saver account early if I’ve been impacted by coronavirus?
Yes. We’ll be waiving access restrictions and early closure fees for the Fixed Rate Saver product if you need to access your money. Customers can still close their Regular Saver account and withdraw the funds if they need to, as normal.
There is no cancellation period with a new Fixed Rate Saver. However, a 14 day cooling off period does apply for reinvestments.
We do not deduct tax from any interest paid to you.
Tax benefits depend on individual circumstances and could change in the future.
- AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. This shows you what the gross rate would be if interest were paid and compounded each year.
- gross is the rate of interest if interest were paid and not compounded each year
