Perhaps you run a business in US currency or simply need a convenient way to handle your US dollar income and expenses. Either way a flexible US dollar savings account can make it easy to manage your money.

We offer both US dollar savings and current accounts. Our clients range from US citizens living and working outside the US to international clients living and working in the UK or abroad.

  • Potential financial planning benefits

    Our US dollar accounts can be held offshore, giving you potential financial and tax planning flexibility and benefits.
  • Cut foreign exchange costs

    If you have income or expenses in dollars, a US dollar savings account could help limit foreign exchange costs and account administration charges.
  • Options to minimise interest rate changes

    With fixed-term and guaranteed return products like our Treasury Deposits, you can avoid the risks of changes in interest rates.

Deposits with other banks

If you have the dollar equivalent of £1,000,000 or more to invest, deposits with other banks allow you to diversify counterparty risk across different banks.
