Marian Fletcher

After finding Paragon Bank on a cross comparison site searching for a competitive rate, Marian selected Paragon Bank’s One Year Fixed Rate savings account.

Marian said:

My husband’s experience with Paragon Bank was really positive – very clear, very simple and just a great customer service. So when I saw Paragon Bank on the comparison site, it was a simple decision for me to make, much like their application form. They offer a good professional service - it’s very refreshing and reassuring.

Marian, who likes to host dinner parties in her spare time and entertain friends and family, valued the higher interest rate on her savings offered with the One Year Fixed savings account than the Easy Access accounts.

Sheila Fowler

Sheila Fowler likes to keep things straightforward with her retirement nest-egg and opted for a Paragon Bank Fixed Rate Savings Account, happy to tie up a proportion of her savings for a fixed term in order to ensure a consistent return.

When deciding where to invest her savings, Sheila starts by scanning the "best buy" tables in the national newspapers to get an overview of the most competitive rates available in the market.

Sheila explains:

Paragon Bank caught my attention with their competitive interest rates and then won my business with their simple online application process and clear communications. I also value the ability to move my funds by cheque or online transfer, giving me flexibility in how I direct my money.

Sheila also likes to check that her deposits will be eligible for protection under the UK’s Financial Services Compensation Scheme and looks for a fast and efficient application process to ensure an easy switch.

Lee Renaut

Lee, a full-time Jiu Jitsu competitor and coach, wanted a safe and easy to use account for his savings. When looking for the right savings account, Lee searched online.

Lee said:

The rates on the high street weren’t particularly attractive, but after searching online and coming across Paragon Bank, I haven’t looked back. Paragon Bank’s savings accounts are simple, clear and easy to understand. The communications they offer on banking and savings tips are also great and really useful – especially as I try to save for my first house.

Lee chose the Two Year Fixed Rate savings account, valuing the competitive interest rate and security knowing his savings are tucked away until he finds the right home.
