Banking and interest rates

If your Hornbuckle Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) has a designated account with Bank of Scotland all payments in your plan will be received into that account before being invested in accordance with your (via your adviser) instructions.
Money held in these accounts attracts a rate of interest of 0.05% (¹) AER (²).
(¹) Interest rates cannot be guaranteed and we reserve the right to adjust as appropriate.
(²) Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded each year.

We also provide an alternative interest rate through Metro Bank. In order for our pension members to benefit from this rate we will provide access to an interest-bearing account. Any cash paid into the Bank of Scotland account, which isn’t to be immediately invested, will be placed in the Metro Bank account on a daily basis. Metro Bank’s rate of interest is 0.30% (AER), regardless of the amount of cash held in the pension
plan (scheme) bank account.

The Metro Bank interest rate is not available for any members in a Hornbuckle FIPP or Group SIPP. If your client is a member of one of these schemes and you want to find out more about the rates we offer, or if you have any questions based on the information given above, you can contact our Client Servicing team on 0844 728 9090 or email us at
