Benefitting the public and the public purse

NS&I is both a government department and an Executive Agency of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Our origins can be traced back 160 years to 1861.

When customers invest in NS&I products, they are lending to the Government, which goes towards the public purse. In return, the Government pays interest, or prizes for Premium Bonds. We offer 100% security on all deposits.
