How do I open and manage my account?

Our accounts are available to individuals, aged 18 or over, who are ordinarily resident in the UK (i.e. England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland) for tax purposes and have a permanent UK address. Also, you must have a personal UK bank or building society account that allows transfers to be made to and from it.

Applications to open an account must be completed online through the savings page on our website.

The minimum deposit required to open your account is £1,000. The maximum deposit you may pay into any one account with us is £250,000.

The maximum amount that you may hold on deposit with us across all types of accounts is £250,000.

You can only fund your account with a single deposit payment when opening your account. We cannot accept additional deposits into the same account during the term of the deposit.

Once funded and activated, your account can be managed via the ‘My Account’ section of our website.

If for any reason you need to contact us, this can be done by email, by phone or by writing to us. Please refer to our website for our contact details.

Can I withdraw money?

No. This is a Fixed Term Deposit Account for a set period of time and our Fixed Term Deposit Accounts do not allow for funds to be withdrawn during the term of the deposit. We will contact you before the account matures to inform you of the options available for your maturing funds.

30 days before your account matures, you are sent an email asking if you want to:

  • Reinvest your full original principal investment and the interest earned into a new OakNorth Fixed Term Deposit account.
  • Return your full original principal investment and interest earned back to their nominated account.
  • Reinvest a partial amount into a new OakNorth Fixed Term Deposit account and return the remainder back to your nominated account.

If we do not hear from you before your account maturity date, the total amount including interest will be automatically transferred to a variable rate Easy Access Deposit Account with us. You can see our current interest rates on the savings page.

Additional information

Interest will be accrued daily but only applied to your account upon maturity.

Gross rate interest is the interest payable without taking account of any tax payable.

So what are your chances of winning?

The more you invest, the more tickets we will buy on your behalf. Your winnings, if any, will be proportional to the amount you invest. We will confirm your exact share of any potential winnings upon the closure of the funding period per Lottery Group, once we have confirmation of the total amount of investors and total funds raised per Lottery Group.
