Our flagship Gold Bank Account allows you to access your funds as you move around the world, all from the single and secure location of Jersey.
Our Gold Bank Account is available in sterling, euro or US dollar currencies – whichever arrangement best suits your everyday needs. The Gold Bank Account is an instant access account offering tiered rates of interest, which is also supported by a Gold Visa deferred-debit card
Visa deferred-debit card
Your Visa deferred-debit card is linked to your Gold Bank Account and transactions are recorded individually against your account as they occur, allowing you to keep track of your spending throughout the month.
With a Visa deferred-debit card you can earn interest on money you have already spent for up to 30 days; as your Visa card transactions, except cash withdrawals, are only debited on the last day of the month for interest purposes. Cash withdrawals will be debited immediately.

Direct access to your money
Visa is accepted at millions of retail outlets worldwide and 1.6 million ATMs in more than 200 countries and territories, so you can access your Gold Bank Account funds directly, anywhere, and at any time.
There are no charges for cash withdrawals in the same currency as your account. The maximum cash limit per withdrawal is £500, $1,000 or €750. When you withdraw cash or make a purchase in a different currency to that of your card, we will charge a foreign exchange commission, which will not exceed 3%.
Card usage levy
Some retailers or service providers may levy a surcharge if you use your Visa deferred-debit card to make payments for their goods or services. This is because, within the Visa transaction system, deferred-debit cards are treated as credit cards. Therefore, if a retailer or service provider advises you that there is a charge for their service, then a surcharge may be levied, this surcharge will apply to your transaction and will be debited from your account as part of your transaction.
Please also note that if retailers or service providers inform you that they do not accept credit cards then this means that they will not accept your deferred-debit card.
