The Co-operative Bank has increased the rates paid on a number of its offshore accounts.

The 1 Year Offshore Fixed Rate Bond now pays 3.50% yearly (3.43% monthly), while the two year account offers 3.75% yearly (3.68% monthly).

The 3 year fixed rate offshore account pays a rate of 4.00% (3.93% monthly).

Both the one and three year options paying 3.50% and 4.00% respectively, sit at the top of their sectors. The two year option paying 3.75% also sits towards the top of the medium term bond market.

As is common with fixed rate bonds, earlier access and further additions are not permitted.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
