    are going to get a UK banking license before Brexit date, so if they get to the top of the savings tables again and you were concerned about relying on the French compensation system, it should be the same risk as the UK competition in future.

    iv'e been using them since they were top, rates are climbing 1.42% now so i expect them to increase further when they get the license.

    As said already, they have been increasing their rates recently and applying the increase to existing customers too, so they seem to be fair to deal with.


    [BTW, it's a licence, not a license!]

    Have to say I've been very impressed with RCI over last couple of years. They have consistently increased interest rates in line with top few providers (even if by 0.05% at a time!). UK licence would be very much welcome from my point of view.

    If they haven't brought their rate up to compete with Marcus already, I doubt they will when they have FSCS cover.
