Easy Access Account

Fast and Simple

Found Aldermore online via google. very impressed with other reviews and press comments so decided to open an account. Found the process very simple and quick to complete, was surprised to receive a call when I made my first deposit which was a nice touch. Pays a good rate of interest compared to my bank and allows for quick transfers should the money be required in a hurry.

Easy Access Account

Competitive interest rate and easy account opening process

Have been very impressed with the ease of account opening for my limited company - it was all done online with no need to provide any documentation or speak to anyone. Account was opened and able to receive deposits next working day and the process of transferring funds from my main bank has worked fine. Website is very secure and does all that you would expect. To date am very impressed.
