How your interest is calculated

Interest is calculated from the date your bond is issued. There will be 2 issue dates 16 December 2016 and 1 February 2016. The bond is a 2 year investment with the 5.5/6% interest p.a. interest rolled up and paid at the end of the second year. If you decide to redeem your bond after 2 years you will be repaid your capital and interest earned during the period. You may also have the option to renew your bond for a further period.
