What is a Money Desk Deposit?

Freedom to invest
Save as much as you like – there is no limit on how much you can have in a Money Desk  For terms of less than 6 months the minimum balance is £10,000. For terms of 6 months or more the minimum balance is £2,500

Flexible terms
You can place your funds in a Money Desk account from as little as one week up to one year
