Robert Anderson

For Robert, a self-employed finance specialist, finding a savings account that was easy to use and manage online was just as important as having a competitive interest rate.

Robert chose Paragon Bank’s 120 Day Notice Account, enabling him to meet planned expenses while earning a little more interest on his funds.

Robert explains:

Having a competitive rate was great but having an account I could set up and access from my office was just as important - the set-up process was very quick and simple to use.

Depositor protection offered by Financial Services Compensation Scheme was also a key consideration for Robert when selecting Paragon Bank.

Jeremy Cottrill

Well-versed in managing unpredictable situations in his work life, former Police Superintendent Jeremy Cottrill likes to keep things straightforward when it comes to his financial affairs.

Jeremy chose Paragon Bank’s 120 Day Notice Account for a portion of his cash savings after seeing the interest rate highlighted on a comparison website and checking that deposits would be covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

As Jeremy explains:

The account provides a safe and rewarding home for my money. It’s been easy to open and manage online, the service has been responsive and the support staff open and willing to help. It’s good to see the new banks adding competition and choice for UK savers.

Joe Pollins

Retired children’s nurse and Ealing Studios movie fan, Joe, chose a Paragon Bank Easy Access account and a 120 Day Notice Account for his savings. Joe searched the market for the most competitive rate at the time as he sought an accessible savings account, and somewhere he could put his savings aside for the short to medium term.

Joe explained:

Both accounts ticked all the boxes and everything is just so easy – they give a reasonable return and are covered under the FSCS protection scheme, giving me the maximum security.

Joe likes the new approach to banking and the variety of accounts Paragon Bank offers. The 120 Day Notice Account gives him the option to access his savings with appropriate notice but earn a higher interest rate, whilst the Easy Access account allows him to withdraw from his savings should he need to.
