Latest Rating and Reviews

Fixed Rate with Access - 1 Year

Ideal Banking Service for Business Customer Savings

Having deposited a sum of money with Aldermore last year in a Fixed Term Savings Account, we were delighted with the return compared to our High Street Bank. We weren't sure that we wouldn't have a requirement for some of the money this year, but the slightly lower rate of interest in exchange for the ability to withdraw 25% of our savings if necessary during the year seems to us to be the ideal compromise. Any concerns we may have had previously were allayed by last year's performance

Fixed Rate with Access - 1 Year

Best I could find

After research found this product for making some spare business cash work a little bit harder. Only dissatisfaction is that they sent this review link to the secondary signature on the account (a man) who had nothing to do with the research or setting it up or sending identification documents through or any of the communication. Maybe there is another one trapped in the ether.... From the slightly disgruntled female who did all the work.

Fixed Rate with Access - 1 Year

Easy!

Wanted to set up a Business savings account with minimal effort and time - this account met those needs perfectly.

Fixed Rate with Access - 1 Year

Simple, straight-forward on-line access.

We looked around for a suitable business deposit account and considered a number of institutions. Of those that we considered Aldermore offered amongst the best rates of interest. Also when it came to opening this account, this proved to be simple and straight-forward with an excellent on-line portal.

Fixed Rate with Access - 1 Year

Very pleased but have one recommendation for even further ease.

The fixed term deposit was easy to open with good customer support even though support was hardly needed. One suggestion ... I also hold an easy savings account and would have liked to add to the fixed rate sum on maturity directly from that account. However, Aldermore's current system does not allow that. I had to move funds from the easy access to a nominated a'c and then from the nominated a/c to the new fixed term. But that was the only downside in an otherwise excellent product.
