This is a 5-year account and may not be suitable for you if you think you will need access to your money during that time. Profit will be paid once a year and withdrawals are not permitted within the 5-year term. Please look at our full range of accounts before making your choice. Shariah principles mean we do not offer interest. In its place we invest your funds in Shariah compliant ways to earn profit which we then share with you. For more information, see our Expected Profit Rate Definition below.
AER offered is the Annual Equivalent Rate and it shows you what the gross rate would be if profit was paid and compounded each year.
The profit we share with you is the 'expected profit rate' we offer at the time you open your account. We monitor your account on a daily basis to ensure the expected profit rate will be achieved. If we believe the expected profit rate will not be achieved, we will contact you giving you notice of the new expected profit rate. You will then have the option to continue your account with us at the new rate, or close your account immediately with your original deposit returned, along with profit earned. To date, Milestone Savings has always managed to pay its customers the expected profit rate.
Support is available by telephone and online, by logging into your account.
