Net Interest Margins  

The Bank of England has substantially hiked its base rate in the past 17 months. 

Borrowers will have noticed that the largest UK banks have been very quick to pass on the higher interest rates onto customers. 

However, it is a different story when it comes to savers. Savers are barely benefitting as big banks have failed to pass on those sizeable interest rate hikes to their customers in full.  

Here at Mouthy Money we’re keeping a check on the rates across the big UK banks.   

Here’s how the profit banks are earning on the difference between what they charge borrowers and pay savers stacks up: 

Bank Q2 2023 Q1 2023 2022 FY 2021 FY 2020 FY 
Barclays Bank  3.22% 3.18%3.20% 2.52% 2.61% 
HSBC  1.72% 1.69%1.48% 1.20% 1.32% 
Lloyds Bank 3.14% 3.22%2.94% 2.54% 2.52%
