Account provider

ICICI BANK UK PLC – We are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority (Registration Number: 223268).

 

We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a Bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors – including most individuals and businesses – are covered by the scheme.

 

In respect of deposits, from 30 January 2017, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000. For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor’s accounts with us including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.

 

For further information about the compensation provided by the FSCS (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please ask at your local branch, refer to the FSCS website www.fscs.org.uk or call the FSCS on 0800 678 1100 or 020 7741 4100. Please note only compensation related queries should be directed to the FSCS.

What is the interest rate?

Standard variable Interest Rate

  • 0.65% AER
  • Interest is paid monthly

Bonus Interest

  • You can earn a Bonus Interest of 0.70% until the Bonus Period ends.
  • Bonus Interest is calculated on a daily basis.
  • The total interest rate including this Bonus Interest will be 1.35% AER.
  • In order to receive this Bonus Interest you must maintain an account balance of £750 on a daily basis.
  • Bonus Interest will not be paid once the Bonus Period ends. You will continue to receive only standard variable interest after Bonus Period.

Interest is accrued daily on the day end cleared balance and paid into your Account on the last business day of each month. This means that interest is compounded monthly.

Can ICICI Bank UK PLC change the interest rate?

  • Yes, the standard variable rate (0.65%) can be changed.
  • We will keep you informed about changes in the interest rates on your account.

If we reduces the interest rate to your disadvantage, you will be given 60 days prior notice and if you wish, we will close your account.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1000 deposit?

 

  • On an amount of £1000, deposited for 12 months at standard variable interest rate of 0.65% (AER), and 0.70% Bonus interest (AER) you'll earn an interest of approximately £13.50. This will be the gross interest (the standard variable interest + the Bonus Interest), provided all the conditions are met.
  • With only standard variable interest rate, you will earn approximately £6.50.

The above example is applicable when amount is deposited for complete year and is not withdrawn from the account
