Deposit products, savings accounts and current accounts

Copies of our most recent audited accounts are available for inspection on request.

IOMB is a member of the Isle of Man Depositors' Compensation Scheme (DCS) as set out in the Depositors' Compensation Scheme Regulations 2010. To understand your eligibility under the scheme you may wish to visit https://www.iomfsa.im/consumer-material/isle-of-man-depositors-compensation-scheme-dcs/

IOMB is not an Authorised Person subject to the rules and regulations made under the UK Financial Services & Markets Act 2000, and therefore deposits made with branches, all of which are outside the UK, are not protected by those rules and regulations covered by the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

As at 31 December 2016, Isle of Man Bank paid-up capital and reserves exceeded 73.45 million. UK resident depositors may be subject to declaration and taxation of resulting income.

IOMB is a member of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group. The Royal Bank of Scotland plc - Registered in Scotland No 90312. Registered office: 36 St Andrew Square, Edinburgh EH2 2YB. The Royal Bank of Scotland plc is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority. The latest report and accounts are available at www.investors.rbs.com.

IOMB places funds with other parts of its Group and thus its financial standing is linked to the Group. Depositors may wish to form their own view on the financial standing of IOMB and the Group based on publicly available information. The latest report and accounts are available at www.iombank.com/financial-results.

UK resident depositors may be subject to declaration and taxation of resulting income.

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates the interest rates as if paid and compounded each year.

The use of the word "Guaranteed" in relation to this product refers only to the ordinary contractual obligation of the bank to repay your capital in full upon maturity. Our products are not guaranteed by any other party and your rights to repayment upon liquidation of the bank are the same as for any other unsecured depositor of the Bank.

With currency accounts there is an exchange rate risk if the currency is not the depositor's reference currency.

Fixed deposit accounts may not be suitable if you require easy access to your funds or an income.

When you pay into your account at a NatWest branch in the United Kingdom, National Westminster Bank Plc (NWB) agrees to receive the money from you for transfer and credit to an account held by you with IOMB. NWB acts as your agent and, if IOMB is willing to accept the funds from you, the credit will be shown on your bank statement.

Mortgages

At Isle of Man Bank we seek to understand all of our customers' financial needs and provide a full banking service. Therefore, in order to apply for a mortgage you must hold or open a current account with us. The main applicant’s salary must be paid into an account with Isle of Man Bank throughout the mortgage term, or, if earlier until retirement.

YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.

Over 18's only. Security required.

YOU SHOULD CHECK THAT EQUITY RELEASE AND BULLET REPAYMENT MORTGAGES WILL MEET YOUR NEEDS IF YOU WANT TO MOVE OR SELL YOUR HOME OR YOU WANT YOUR FAMILY TO INHERIT IT. IF YOU ARE IN ANY DOUBT, SEEK INDEPENDENT ADVICE.

CHANGES IN THE EXCHANGE RATE MAY INCREASE THE STERLING EQUIVALENT OF YOUR DEBT.

Please note that for mortgages with interest payments based upon variable rate terms there is a risk that the total sum payable under your mortgage increases significantly as rates rise.

Mortgages are available for United Kingdom properties in limited circumstances only and are not covered by the majority of the rules and regulations made under the UK Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. This means that the protection of those rules and regulations and of the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme will not be available to borrowers.

Please note that whilst the examples quoted on this site are fictitious, the figures quoted are based on facts and can be fully supported by reference to bank records and / or statistics. Where monthly repayments are reduced by amalgamating debts it may be that those debts are repaid over a longer period and the total amount of interest paid thereon is consequently greater.
