Nutmeg calculations based on data from Bank of England, Bloomberg as at 20/2/15. Money market rates have been used to estimate future interest rates at monthly and yearly intervals up to 10 years ahead. ISA rates are calculated monthly based on the historic premium of ISA deposit rates (excluding unconditional bonuses) over a money market rate.
