Interest rates viewable here for organisations.
The interest rate is a fixed rate as follows:
Interest is compounded to the account at the end of the term or at each anniversary and / or at the maturity date.
Interest accrues on the daily balance of the Account at the fixed rate notified to you on opening the Account.
No. We are not able to change the interest rate mid term.

Savings terms explained
AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. Whenever you see an advert for a savings account which shows an interest rate, you will see the AER. This means you can use the AER to compare accounts. It shows what the interest rate would be if your interest was paid and compounded once each year.
