Choose a fixed term to get secure rewards on your money

If you have a lump sum to save and you know that you can put it away for a fixed term, then you can benefit from the security of a fixed rate of interest. Savings Direct Fixed Rate Bonds are available to our personal customers only and can be operated by post or phone.

    How it Works


    • You can open your account by post only.
    • Lodgements can only be made by cheque and transfer from an existing Allied Irish Bank GB account.
    • Minimum balance on the account is £5000, maximum balance on the account is £2,000,000.
    • Upon Maturity, funds can be returned from this account to a bank account in your name, nominated at account opening.
    • This account can only be operated by phone and by post.
    • Interest is calculated daily and paid on maturity if a 1 Year Fixed Rate Bond, or on the anniversary of account opening if a 2 Year Fixed Rate Bond.
    • Withdrawals and closures before the Maturity date are only permitted in exceptional circumstances and at the discretion of the Bank following receipt of a written signed request. The interest penalty for early withdrawal or closure is based on how long actually remains on the Bond before Maturity:


    Less than 1 year remaining = 60 days

    Less than 2 years remaining = 90 days
