A market leading rate 📈

We’re planning to offer Chip savers the market leading interest rate for savings on all the money held in their Chip account.

We’re going to lift the £10,000 account limit, so Chip can help people sitting on nest eggs, as well as people saving up.

And of course, these market beating rates will be for all Chip savers, whether they have £20 or £20,000 in their account. Chip is for everyone.

There’ll be even higher returns available through ChipX, our returns marketplace, where you’ll be able to smoothly move your money between bonds, investments and Chip’s very own CommunityLending.

How we’ll do it 💪

We’re looking at partnering with innovative banks to create a marketplace of interest rates, these banks will pay the bulk of your interest, but we’ll top up the rates to guarantee you’ll always be beating the market.

This means you’ll be able to effortlessly make sure you’re getting the most out of your money.

Working with these banks will enable us to make sure your money is held in FSCS protected accounts, with government-backed protection up to £85,000..

What is FSCS protection? 🙋‍♂️

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) is the government’s pledge to guarantee up to £85,000 of the money people have in their bank or savings account.

It means your money is absolutely safe, whatever happens. Don’t take our word for it, read all about it on the FSCS website.
