• Invest in fixed term deposits

    Fixed term deposits could be a good option if your client needs a consistent return after a set period of time. If your client has an Elevate Pension Investment Account, they can invest in a range of fixed term deposits.

    How it works

    • Your client invests in a fixed term deposit with a trusted provider.
    • By investing for a certain amount of time, they benefit from a specified rate of interest.
    • The interest rate and term are fixed at the start.
    • Your client needs to keep their money invested until the end of the term.
  • Here are the latest rates and terms available:

  • The interest rates shown in the table are Gross Annual Equivalent Rate (AER). This shows what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded each year.

    These rates are indicative – we’ll show the actual rate on your client’s Contract Note.

    Remember, these interest rates don’t take account of any Elevate charges. These charges will of course reduce the overall value of your client’s investment and inflation will reduce the purchasing power of these funds over time. The interest rate is fixed at the start of the investment date and is set by the fixed term deposit provider.

    Interest for fixed term deposits held in the Elevate PIA is paid gross.

    If your client orders a fixed term deposit, their money will be grouped with orders from our other customers. All the orders will all be placed after the cut-off point on each order day.

    Your client cannot withdraw, transfer or switch their money until the end of the fixed term, apart from in some exceptional circumstances. Even in these exceptional circumstances, your client may be charged for withdrawing their money early.

    Fixed term deposits are only available through the Elevate Pension Investment Account. They’re not available to discretionary fund managers, and can’t be held in a Model Portfolio.

    The fixed term deposits, and their interest rates, are offered at the discretion of the fixed term deposit providers. The provider could change or remove any fixed term deposits with little or no notice.

    Each fixed term deposit provider is covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). This protects your client up to £75,000 if the provider becomes insolvent. If your client has invested with providers outside the UK, they may be covered by an equivalent scheme.
