National Savings & Investments (NS&I) has today announced interest rate reductions, effective from 24 November 2020, that will apply to NS&I’s variable rate products, including Premium Bonds, and some fixed term products.
NS&I has taken this decision in order to strike a balance between the interests of savers, taxpayers and the broader financial services sector. These reductions will see NS&I align its savings products against the rates offered by the banks and building societies.
The Premium Bonds prize fund rate will be reducing by 40 basis points, from 1.40% to 1.00%. The odds of any £1 Bond number winning any prize will decrease from 24,500/1 to 34,500/1. The changes will be effective from the December 2020 prize draw.
