After enquiring with banks in Southern Portugal,they really dont want to know clients,wishing to deposit funds in sterling currency,mainly because its national currency is the Euro,and because sterling values are so low,they are presently offering around 1% for a 1yr term.Does anyone know of a UK bank or building society,who will accept expat funds,pensioners at that,without a UK address.
