3rd August 2023

London, Thursday 3rd August 2023: Starling Bank is today raising the interest rate on its 1-Year Fixed Saver from 3.25% to 5.25% AER/Gross* in response to changes in Bank of England interest rate rises.

Effective from Thursday 3 August 2023, Starling Bank customers choosing the Fixed Saver will receive a return of 5.25% on balances of £2,000 - £1 million locked in for one year.

A Fixed Saver is managed from the Spaces section of both the Starling Bank app and online bank for maximum visibility and control.
