The NatWest Pigs Are Back And They Are Full Of It - Cash That Is!
(06 March 2006)

After more than a decade, the NatWest pigs are coming out of retirement as part of a new NatWest Savings & Investments Free Prize Draw. The free prize draw, launched today, is offering savings customers the chance to win up to 10,000 and a limited edition Golden NatWest pig.

From today, until 14th April, customers opening a new savings account or taking out an investment product with NatWest will automatically be entered into a free prize draw. Over 100 winners will be drawn and each will receive a cash prize of between 100 and 10,000. In addition, each lucky winner will be awarded an exclusive, limited edition Golden NatWest Woody Pig.

To accompany the free prize draw NatWest has launched a new 5% tier on its Mini Cash ISA (interest paid monthly). For customers looking to make the most of their tax efficient savings the new tier, for balances of 25,000 upwards, will pay 5.0%AER and with NatWest’s hassle-free cash ISA transfer service its simple for customers to transfer their cash ISA to NatWest and start benefiting from this high rate. NatWest has also launched a new Guaranteed Capital Bond which has returns linked to the FTSE 100 TM performance. At the end of the six-year term customers are guaranteed a return of either 114% of their original investment or 50% of any growth in the FTSE 100 TM, whichever is the greater.

Helen Page, NatWest Marketing Director, said: "We are thrilled that the NatWest pigs are back as part of this great prize draw, as historically they are the face of NatWest savings. We are excited about the draw and look forward to awarding our winners these super prizes for saving or spending!"

She continued: "We are also pleased to be able to introduce the new 5% tier on one of our most popular products strengthening the accounts position as one of the best on the market."

For more information, customers should drop into their local branch or visit natwest.com or call 0800 255 200.
