Single Easy Access Rate (SEAR)

Also on


In a recently published consultation paper, the FCA has proposed a single interest rate for all easy access savings accounts provided by a deposit-taking institution. Firms have until April 9 to provide comments on this consultation paper to the FCA. As a priority, firms should identify and assess a range of scenarios, including competitive dynamics and to understand the potential impact of the proposal, including the ‘unintended consequences’ for the market.
