NS&I Green Savings Bond – Update

Gresham Wealth

NS&I has confirmed that they will launch their Green Savings Bonds ‘later in the year’, although a date has yet to be confirmed. The new retail savings product, which was announced by the Chancellor in the 2021 Budget, had been expected to be available to investors by the summer, but has been delayed.

The Bonds will be available to those aged 16 or over, with a minimum investment of £100 and a maximum limit of £100,000 per person.

The idea behind the bonds is to offer a fixed rate savings product over a 3-year term, the money from which would be used to help finance Government green spending projects. Such projects would be designed to tackle climate change and help work towards sustainability targets, and might include green transport improvements, renewable energy projects, pollution prevention, energy efficiently and protecting natural resources.

Further details, such as the rate of the Bonds or an exact date for release, have yet to be announced.  

As with all NS&I products, the Green Savings Bond will be 100% government backed. For those with excess cash that they are able to tie up for three years, the bond provides an accessible opportunity to diversify while doing some good.

I am only in this position because of you. One of the best decisions I have ever taken going with GWM.

With great thanks for all your reassuring attention over the last year. It means more to me than I can express in a few words.

I just want to thank you and your team so very much for all you do for me throughout the year. It is a real comfort to know that my investments are in such capable hands. I literally couldn’t do it on my own.

We are both very grateful for the time you spent with us in explaining various options. We certainly feel we now both have a much better understanding of our situation & the decisions which we need to consider moving forward.

Thanks again for your advice, you have given me the kick I needed to take control and I’m very grateful for that.

We feel we can phone at any time during office hours if we need anything clarifying. Our financial adviser knows our personal circumstances and is in tune with our goals and lifestyle. His advice has been and continues to be excellent.

You’ve solved that dilemma for me… Thank you for being so clear and honest as always.

A very personalised service… All advice is tailored to my needs with great consideration to issues I may not have thought of myself. I feel confident about my future finances.

Thank you so much again for your time and brilliant advice.

Just a big thank you for all you have done for our family. We do appreciate it.
