It's a good news day — we’ve increased our cash Lifetime ISA's interest rate again from 1.25% to 1.75% AER 🎉

In bankglish, that’s 1.75% AER (annual equivalent rate – aka: per year.)

That means, if you open a Nude cash Lifetime ISA from today, you’ll earn 1.75% interest on your savings annually on top of that 25% government bonus 🚀

All of our cash Lifetime ISA savers get the new rate, because we believe in fairness 🙌

We don't believe in introductory rates: we give all of our cash Lifetime ISA savers the same interest rate – whether they're new, or have been with us for a while.

Because after all: we're here to help everybody to get into their first home sooner, not just those who were last in the door.

So, why are we raising our rate again?

You might have seen that the Bank of England base rate went up to 1.75%, and at Nude, we think it's only fair that we pass on that rate to our customers.

In fact, we managed to match that rate within just minutes of today's BoE announcement – quicker than you can assemble a piece of flat pack furniture (fact).

In a cost-of-living crisis, we are committed to doing whatever we can to help first-time buyers to continue to make progress towards their goal, and this new interest rate is part of that.

We’ll automatically apply the new increased rate of interest to all cash Lifetime ISA accounts – old and new – from 4th August 2022.

How does the interest rate thing actually work?

If you have a cash Lifetime ISA with us, you qualify to earn interest on your balance from day one.

If you're transferring over to us, as soon as your new Nude account is open, you'll start to earn interest on the balance in your account.

How much interest you're due is based on the full amount in your account – so you get interest on the government bonus you've earned and the money you've saved yourself. It's calculated daily, then you receive the interest payments every month.

If you're interested (pun intended), the way annual equivalent rates (aka AER) work is by dividing the interest rate by the 365 days in the year. So every day, you earn 1/365th of 1.75% on your account balance. We calculate your interest daily. and then apply it to your account monthly.

It gets added straight into your cash Lifetime ISA, and we'll send you a push notification when they land in your account (if you've got them turned on) 🔥

We're more than just a (great) interest rate

We’re committed to giving you the best rates we can, but we’re also so much more than that. By saving with us, you get an app that puts you in control of your money, as well as game-changing features for first-time buyers that you can’t get by having your Lifetime ISA elsewhere.

After all, we want you to be able to get into your home sooner – just don’t forget to invite us to the housewarming...

Here's the wordy disclaimer bit we have to include which can help you to understand more about the terms: Interest rates can rise as well as fall. Our approach to interest rate increases and decreases can be found in our customer agreement. If there are any future decreases in interest rate, we will issue notice to all account holders at least 110 days before the change takes place.
