How to get more from your savings.

We have many clients relying on the interest they receive from their savings to support low incomes.  If those savings are in banks and building societies low interest rates mean this is becoming impossible without dipping into the capital, and so they are losing money.

A recent article in the Telegraph by Dan Hyde on 31st July 2013 reported that the interest on longer-term savings products has fallen to a nine-year low. For example, the average interest paid on one-year bonds has fallen from 2.06 % to 1.85% in the last month alone. It is the first time the figure has dropped below 2% since records began in 2004. The Telegraph also discloses that banks and building societies have since January knocked nearly £850m off the annual interest paid to savers. The cuts coincide with banks making billions of pounds in profit in the first half of this year.

Research by our team showed the highest fixed rate for a £10,000 1 year term bond according to moneysupermarket.com on 13th September was 1.80% gross which equates to £180 before tax and £144 after 20% tax deducted. 

Working with reputable and well established partners we have shown our clients how to achieve 12% fixed income on a 1 year bond, so on that £10,000 investment they receive £1,200 before tax and £960 after 20% tax deducted.  This can support low incomes and avoid the need to dip into capital.

We also offer a free, no obligation face to face consultation at a place and time convenient for you, book your appointment by emailing us at enquiries@slric.com
