We are advertising this new offering through product comparison sites, to make sure that our offer is shown to the most appropriate people, and new customers will apply directly through our website: www.vanquissavings.co.uk.
Of our existing cards and loans business, we know 40% hold savings with other providers, therefore it’s fitting that as part of our journey into a fully-fledged Banking Group, that we open up more options to our customers who might otherwise struggle to find the right savings product which fits their needs.
In line with our Purpose and the principals behind our products, should a customer suffer adversely with exceptional circumstances such a significant life event, allowances will be made.
“Launching Notice Accounts adds to our experience in Savings, where we have offered Fixed Term Bonds to an investment audience for over 10 years. Funds from our long-term Fixed Rate bond customers have been supporting the Group to fund our other products, allowing us to grow, develop and improve other business areas, such as our credit cards and loans provisions for the customers who otherwise might have struggled to be financially included in society during this period.”
