Three of the biggest building societies WILL finally raise rates for savers after December’s BofE decisionbut others, including Nationwide, fail to do so

  • ヨークシャー, Skipton and Newcastle BS all set to hike variable rates from 1 2月
  • The Bank of England increased the base rate from 0.1 に 0.25%
  • Only some deals will be upped and full base rate rise won’t always be passed on
  • Yorkshire BS will be hiking rates by only 0.1% on all its variable deals
  • 全国, コベントリー, Leeds and Principality BS are all yet to make any changes
  • Three of Britain’s biggest building societies will increase the interest rates on a number of savings deals, following last month’s Bank of England base rate rise.

    ニューカッスル, Skipton and Yorkshire Building Societies, which between them have roughly 4million members, have announced that rates will head upwards as of 1 2月.

    しかしながら, all three are only upping interest rates for some of their saversnamely those on variable deals.

    Only savers on variable rates stand to benefit and in most cases the full 0.15 per cent base rate rise won't be passed on.

    さらに, only Newcastle Building Society claim to be passing on the 0.15 per cent rise in full.

    The rate rises will all take effect from 1 2月 – almost seven weeks after the Bank of England lifted the base rate from 0.1 パーセントから 0.25 パーセント.

    Yorkshire Building Society, home to almost three million members, will be hiking its variable rates by 0.1 からのパーセント 1 2月.

    This means its best paying easy-access deal will rise from 0.4 パーセントから 0.5 パーセント, whilst its best paying easy access cash Isa deal will increase from 0.35 パーセントから 0.45 パーセント.

    Chris Irwin, director of savings at Yorkshire Building Society, 前記: ‘It has been a tough few years for savers so we’re delighted to be able to increase our savings products at the same time as protecting our borrowers from the increase.

    ‘With no external shareholders to satisfy we have protected savers as far as possible during the extended period of a record low Bank Rate, maintaining an average interest rate on our accounts which has been consistently higher than the market average.

    ‘Our decision today to increase our variable rate accounts continues to reflect our mutual ethos of putting our members first.

    Skipton Building Society, which has over 1million members, has also decided to up its variable rates in light of the base rate change and claims that over half a million customers are getting rate increases as a result.

    It states that the average rate rise is 0.12 per cent for members whose rates are increasing and its average variable rate after these changes will be 0.40 パーセント.

    Most notably, Skipton’s Triple Access Saver will rise from 0.61 パーセントから 0.7 パーセント.

    As it stands that will make it the best paying easy-access deal on the marketalbeit limiting savers to three withdrawals a year.

    What about the other big names?

    Given their focus on customers, it was expected that all these member-owned organisations might score an advantage over their banking rivals by immediately pushing up savings rates in the wake of last month’s increase in the base rate.

    まだ, whilst three are now doing so, 全国, コベントリー, Leeds and Principality Building Society are all yet to make any changes.

    全国, Britain’s largest building mutual by a considerable distance with more than 16million members is remaining tight lipped on the matter.

    Leeds Building Society, home to roughly 750,000 メンバー, also says it is still ‘reviewing the impactof the base rate rise.

    広報担当者は言った: ‘As a building society, it’s important for us to balance the needs of savers and borrowers, and we’ve worked hard in this low interest rate environment to offer long-term value to both.

    ‘The majority of Leeds Building Society savers and borrowers are on fixed rate products. したがって、, their rates will remain the same until their fixed periods end.

    広報担当者は言った: 'に 2021 we paid our savers more on average than the rest of the market.

    ‘Maintaining higher savings rates when others cut them back to almost nothing shows our commitment to savers over the long term.
