Santander International Review

  • Corporate solutions like corporate banking
  • Foreign exchange
  • Investments
  • Decent corporate solutions for businesses that are registered out of the Isle of Man
  • The online system is OK
  • The bank accounts are reasonable value, with three currencies available including Euros, USD and GBP.
  • Competitive mortgage rates for Isle of Man residents
  • Just like most other banks, the savings accounts on offer (called Notice Accounts, Fixed Deposit and Gold Bank account) don’t offer high rates of returns. Even the fixed deposits pay only 1.5% per year….on balances above one million GBP and less on smaller accounts!
  • The investment products are expensive and focus on their own products.
  • On the FX side, there are much cheaper options these days, including online brokers, which I will review below.
