The Metro Bank easy access cash deposit account pays 0.05% interest per annum (variable).

This is an easy access deposit account, so you can withdraw your money whenever you like and it will be with you the following working day.

Your account is fully managed via Cushon and we will arrange for your money to be deposited with Metro Bank. The Financial Services Compensation Scheme protects your savings up to £85,000.

Your deposit will be held in a separate cash pot within your Cushon GIA. You can organise your savings and investments across as many pots as you like within your Cushon GIA because they all sit in one account behind the scenes.

You do not pay the normal Cushon platform charge on cash deposits held within your Cushon account, because our banking partners pay the charges for you!
