    Brendan Synnott, Managing Director of Nationwide UK (Ireland), commented, "The addition of sterling accounts to our existing savings range will enable customers to diversify their savings portfolio and hold savings in a second major currency. Uniquely, our customers will be able to conveniently manage their Euro and Sterling savings in one central hub via our existing internet banking, telebanking or call-in services.

    The range of sterling products being offered enhances our existing saving product portfolio and reconfirms our commitment to offering security and long term value to Irish savers."

    Initial deposits to Nationwide UK (Ireland)'s sterling savings accounts can be made by cheque or electronic transfer. As with all Nationwide UK (Ireland) savings accounts there is a 14 day cooling off period.

    Nationwide UK (Ireland) now offers five Euro savings products to Irish savers; an Easy Access Savings Account and four Fixed Rate Savings Accounts (6 months, 12 months, 24 Months, 36 Months) and three Sterling savings products: an Easy Access Savings Account and two Fixed Rate Savings Accounts (6 month, 12 months).
