Goldman Sachs International Bank Interest Rates

You can find details of our current interest rates, historical interest rates and any future interest rates applicable to your deposit account(s) with Goldman Sachs International Bank in the tables below. Please note that the rates displayed below apply solely to offerings by Goldman Sachs International Bank for Private Wealth Management clients and do not reflect any similar offerings for other clients or by other Goldman Sachs affiliates. In accordance with the Goldman Sachs International Bank Private Wealth Management account terms and conditions, the interest rate we will pay on your account is a combination of the "Reference Rate" and "Specified Margin" set out below and will vary depending on the currency in which your account is denominated, as set out below. The rate of interest applicable depends on your circumstances and may change in the future. Interest is variable, calculated daily and paid on a monthly basis. If you are at all unsure about what interest rate applies to your account, please contact your Private Wealth Management team.

1Gross AER - Annual Equivalent Rate. Interest that is calculated under the assumption that any interest paid is combined with the original balance and the next interest payment will be based on the slightly higher account balance. Overall, this means that interest can be compounded several times in a year depending on the number of times that interest payments are made. Interest rates are reported on a gross basis, namely the rate applicable before income tax is deducted (where applicable).
2The Day Count convention refers to the number of days used in the calculation of the compounded interest applicable to a deposit as reflected in the AER. The market standard is to calculate the interest at Actual/360 day count convention for EONIA, Fed Funds, and SARON based rates, and at Actual/365 day count convention for SONIA and HKD HIBOR based rates. We are currently accruing interest on all our deposits at Actual/365 day count convention, which results in a marginally higher AER than would be the case if applying the Actual/360 day count for EONIA, Fed Funds, and SARON.
3The Reference Rate for SARON (used for CHF) and HIBOR (used for HKD) displayed on this website is the relevant rate published for the one day period on the business day (in the currency location) prior to today (London time) or, if today is not a business day (in the currency location), the most recent business day (in the currency location) prior to this day in London.  The Reference Rate for Fed Funds (used for USD), SONIA (used for GBP), and EONIA (used for EUR) displayed on this website is the relevant rate published for the one day period two business days (in the currency location) prior to today (London time) or, if today is not a business day (in the currency location), the most recent business day (in the currency location) prior to this day in London.

Please note that the interest rates applicable on our deposit accounts are generally rounded to eight decimal places. However, when displaying interest rates on this website (including the Reference Rate and Specified Margin), we have rounded the relevant rate to two decimal places. So, for example, if the interest rate on your account is 2.15723412%, it will be displayed on this website as 2.16%.


To the extent EUR or CHF denominated monies deposited in your GSIB Deposit Account are swept from your discretionary managed Custody Account, the Reference Rate and Interest Rate for the relevant currency applicable to that GSIB Deposit Account shall be 0%.
