Walter Iles

Car enthusiast and semi-retired HGV driver, Walter, likes to have flexibility when it comes to his savings - having the option to dip in and out of his money when he wants to without any penalty or notice period.

Having searched the market and internet comparison sites, Walter was eager to find the best rate.

Walter explains:

I was searching for a competitive rate but equally I wanted an account that was flexible. I looked at the high street banks but then came across Paragon after an internet search. It had a competitive rate and a great online system that allowed me to transfer to and from my savings.

Walter also valued Paragon Bank’s local roots and FSCS deposit protection.

Will Riches

Mr Riches had been searching for a new account on the high street to help manage his finances after recently becoming a new father, but turned to Paragon Bank after finding the easy access account on an online comparison site.

The demands of having a new baby meant having the flexibility to access his savings was just as important as having a competitive rate.

Mr Riches explains:

For me, accessibility and ease were hugely important. The Paragon Bank application and online system is modern, efficient and overall, excellent - it’s simple to add to my savings but also withdraw them should I need to.

For 25 year old jogging and cycling enthusiast, Fiona, it was important that her savings could adapt to the fast-paced demands of her lifestyle and that she could access them online whenever and wherever she needs to.

Fiona chose the easy access account because of its flexibility and simplicity in adding to and withdrawing from her savings.

Fiona explains:

After finding out about Paragon Bank and the wider Paragon Group on the internet, I was interested in what they had to offer. The easy access account not only offered a competitive rate but it was also very easy to open and simple to manage online, meaning I could access my savings when I need to.
