The new fixed rate bonds from Bradford & Bingley International offer a little something special to those looking to swim in offshore investment waters.

The 18 month bond paying 3.60% is a welcome addition to its fixed rate portfolio and may prove especially popular because of its low minimum investment of £5K.

Meanwhile, a 0.25% increase in the one year rate to 3.00% is also good news for investors.

However, it is the 0.50% increase in the escalator bond to an average rate of 4.00% which steals the show.

For those looking to invest in the medium term, it is one of the best two year offshore bonds around.

As with most bonds, no withdrawals or additions are permitted during their term, so you'll need to be certain what funds you can commit from the outset.

Delivering on most fronts, this range of bonds earns four out five Moneyfacts stars.
