Why are interest rates so important?

Interest rates hold a crucial role in the banking sector, representing both the cost of borrowing money and the potential return on cash deposits.

When understood and utilised correctly, they can significantly impact the growth of your savings over time.

Moreover, it’s worth highlighting that interest rates can vary based on the amount you deposit in your account. Typically, accounts with larger balances benefit from more attractive interest rates, promoting greater returns over extended periods.
