Frequently asked questions

How does the platform work?

Flagstone partners with many banks and building societies meaning you do not have to shop around and spend time completing applications forms for each new account. Your Flagstone account gives you easy access to a choice of savings accounts including exclusive accounts not available elsewhere.

How are you able to offer competitive rates?

As the UK's leading cash deposit platform, the volume of deposits placed with us, and the relationships developed with our partner banks gives us access to exclusive and market-leading deposit rates for our clients.

How is my money protected?

All UK-based banks and building societies on our platform are members of the Financial Service Compensation Scheme (FSCS). This allows you to protect your savings by spreading your cash across several banks or building societies, and receive the FSCS protection of £85K each time (£170K for joint accounts).

All accounts on the Flagstone Platform are “segregated client trust accounts”.  Our clients are individual beneficiaries of this trust for the amount of money they deposit (plus interest).  They are absolutely entitled to this money.  As an individual beneficiary, a client’s money is eligible for FSCS protection, provided that the client is eligible.  In the unlikely event that there is an issue with one of our partner banks, Flagstone would carry out the FSCS claim on behalf of its clients.

What is 'share of interest'?

There is no fee for using the platform, rather Flagstone receive a share of interest, paid to us by the Bank that you select to deposit with. The share of interest is a portion of the interest accrued in the account but it does not impact the rate you have selected, the interest rates you see are what you will receive.

 

What do I need to open a Flagstone account?

• Basic personal details including employment status and address history
• Tax status including National Insurance number or your Tax Identification Number (TIN) where relevant
• Information about the source of funds you wish to deposit
• Details of a UK mainland bank account ('nominated account') you wish to deposit from and have funds returned to.
• You may be required to provide copies of proof of ID, proof of address, or proof of source of funds after submitting your application.
