A few things before getting started
Easy Access Account
What is the product?
This is an Easy Access Account, operated under Shariah principles. This means that interest cannot be earned, only profit.
What does this mean for my money?
The profit we share is the expected profit rate at the time you open your account. We monitor your account on a daily basis to ensure the expected profit rate will be achieved. If we believe the expected profit rate will not be achieved, we will contact you giving you notice of the new expected profit rate. You will then have the option to continue your account with us at the new rate, or close your account immediately with your original deposit returned, along with profit earned.
To date, Gatehouse Bank has always managed to pay its customers the expected profit rate.
AER offered is the Annual Equivalent Rate and it shows you what the gross rate would be if profit was paid and compounded each year.
