Yorkshire Bank has announced the launch of Signature Current Account, a new account to help busy professionals manage their finances. The account, which can be linked to a high interest savings account or to an offset mortgage, comes with a range of attractive lifestyle benefits.
As the pace of everyday life gets faster, many are looking for high quality products and services that afford them a new luxury - time. Yorkshire Bank’s new Signature Current Account has been designed to help - providing everything you could need from a current account, with a little bit more.
The Signature Current Account is available to customers for a monthly fee of £10. It comes with a range of insurance benefits worth nearly £400 a year, offering customers high quality, comprehensive cover and excellent value for money without having to source individual providers. The benefits include:
The Signature Current Account can also help customers maximise interest by sweeping surplus credit from their account into a linked Signature Savings Account - which offers a competitive rate of 5.30% including a 0.75% bonus guaranteed until 30 September 2009.
Gary Lumby, Yorkshire Bank’s Retail Director, said: “Today’s busy professionals are looking for services that deliver both quality and value. For just £10 a month, the Signature current account provides customers with everything they need from a current account – with the added peace of mind that everything from snowboarding on their winter holiday to their car breaking down, their identity being stolen or their IPod being damaged - is covered.”
Gary continues: “The Signature Savings Account allows customers to make their money work harder for them. By automatically sweeping surplus balance from their current account, Signature customers can ensure their cash accrues the higher interest of the linked savings account – helping them make the most of their hard earned cash!”
The Signature current account is available to new and existing customers of Clydesdale Bank. For more information please contact 0800 111 4147 (opening hours 9 - 5 Mon-Fri).
