What’s the interest rate?
Cash Management Account
When you apply for a Fixed Term Savings account you must already hold a Cash Management account or we’ll open one during your application so that we can pay any interest you’ve earned, along with you deposit, when the saving term comes to an end.
We may need to confirm your identity and/or proof of your residential address when opening your Cash Management account.
Can NatWest International change the interest rate?
No. The interest rate is fixed for the term of your deposit. This means that the rate will not change between the Fixed Term Deposit Start Date and the Fixed Term Deposit Maturity Date.
