Rate of Interest
When you open our Investment ISA, you can ask us to hold your monies in cash in our client bank account until your 30 day cancellation period has expired. At the end of the cancellation period, your money will be invested in the fund you have chosen. We pay the following rates of interest on cash held in the client bank account:
|Rate of Interest (last updated on 01/11/2016)|
|£0 - £49,999||0.00%|
|£50,000 - £149,999||0.025%|
|£150,000 - £249,999||0.05%|
|£250,000 and above||0.075%|
How we calculate the rate of interest:
Interest is calculated daily and applied to a customer’s cash account on a monthly basis.
IFDL earn a margin on the interest received. This margin depends upon the interest paid to customers and the interest rate received from Banks with whom we deposit customer monies.
In the unlikely event of a bank failure, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) guarantees up to £75,000 per person per firm (where separately authorised) in respect of retail deposits. To offer maximum protection, deposits would need to be divided equally between the above banks. However, in order to secure a competitive customers interest rate, this cannot be guaranteed.
Please note, the £75,000 protection covers a customer’s total holding with a single authorised institution.
