Savings accounts for non UK residents

are there any Savings accounts out there (Easy access /notice) for EU residents other than Skipton International?

Just looking to diversify but not found any equivalent to Skpt Int yet (there are some but request huge sums as an inital deposit). 
TIA!

    I don't think anything's moved on from your prior threads. You could think about buying gilts? You'd need a stockbroker, though.

    Is your situation still the same i.e. resident in Italy and looking to buy a property there in the next one or two years?

    Many of the high street banks have an offshore arm in the Bailiwick of Guernsey or another non-UK island like Skipton but most are aimed at the more well off end of the market. Any reason to not want a EU bank?

    There aren’t many but a bit of googling should let you find things like the Santander Island Regular Saver which has very low deposit requirements.

    Didn't realise Skipton had declared independence as a non-UK island ;)
