Nedbank Private Wealth Interest rate schedule

Rates correct as of 19 June 2024.


A tracker rate is a variable rate, which tracks a published reference rate.

We pay tracker rates on our current accounts. The rate we pay is a fixed % (margin) above or below the reference rate. When the reference rate changes, the tracker rate will also change. The reference rates we track, and our margins, are set out in this document.


A fixed rate is an interest rate that we agree with you. Fixed rates apply for a specific period of time, and do not change during that period, even if published reference rates change. We pay fixed interest rates on our fixed term deposit accounts.


Current accounts

The rate of interest paid on personal current accounts is:

Sterling 2.75% 2.78% 2.75%
Euros 0.50% 0.50% 0.50%
US Dollars 2.25% 2.27% 2.75%
South African Rand 4.25% 4.33% 4.25%

We do not normally pay credit interest on non-personal accounts.

Interest rates on current accounts are capped. The maximum rate shown is the maximum rate we will pay, even if the reference rate, minus our margin, is higher.

Example: Sterling Current Accounts

For sterling accounts, the interest rate we pay you is fixed at 2.50% below the Bank of England base rate.
This means that:

  • When the base rate is above 2.50% you will start to receive credit interest on your current account.
  • The interest rate we pay you will increase if the base rate is raised above 2.50%.
  • If the base rate falls below 2.50%, your current account will not receive credit interest.
  • The maximum interest rate we will pay you on a sterling current account is 2.75%.
  • If in the unlikely event that the base rate falls below zero and the currency receives negative interest, this negative rate will be applied as a charge to your current account.

Fixed term deposit accounts

Fixed term deposits are available to personal and non-personal clients. They can be arranged for periods of 1, 3, 6 or 12 months.

Currency Minimum Deposit
Sterling £25,000
Euro €30,000
US Dollars $30,000
South African Rand ZAR500,000

The term, and the interest rate we will pay you, are fixed at the outset and can’t be changed by you or by us.

A reference rate is a rate not set by us and is publicly available so you can check it independently.
The reference rates we use are as follows:

Sterling Bank of England Base Rate 2.50%
Euros European Central Bank Deposit Facility Rate 3.75%
US Dollars US Federal Reserve Fed Funds Target Rate 3.25%
South African Rand South African Reserve Bank Repurchase Rate 4.00%


Unarranged overdrafts

The interest we charge you on unarranged overdrafts on your current account is a “tracker” rate. This means we charge interest at a fixed %, or margin, above the relevant reference rate.

The reference rates we use to calculate the interest you pay us are the same as the reference rates in the previous table, apart from the Euro reference rate, which is the European Central Bank Refinancing Rate.

Our margins in each currency are:

Currency Margin
Sterling 9%
Euros 9%
US Dollars 9%
South African Rand 9%
All other currancies 9%

Arranged overdrafts and loans

If we agree to provide you with an arranged overdraft or loan, we will agree the interest rate with you first. This could be a fixed interest rate, or a tracker rate.


AER Annual Equivalent Rate. This shows you what the gross rate would be if interest was paid and compounded each year.
Currency accounts We do not normally pay credit interest on accounts that are held in currencies other than GBP, EUR, USD and ZAR
Gross% Is the rate of interest if interest was paid and not compounded each year.
Margin Our margin is the difference between the rate that we track, and the rate of interest that we pay you, or that you must pay us.
Maximum For current accounts, this is the maximum credit interest rate that will be paid, regardless of movements in the rate that we track.
Negative interest rate If the rate that we track, minus our margin, equals a negative interest rate, we may charge you negative interest on the credit balance of all accounts.
