Savings Guru Verdict

OakNorth offer a good range of savings accounts and have regularly appeared in our best buys since their launch.  They have a tendency to change the rates on offer after short periods of time, so we’d always recommend savers moving quickly to secure a product if they see a rate that appeals.  OakNorth allow 14 days to fund the account, which is a reasonable timeframe.
