Bank of Scotland International has increased the rate on its three year fixed rate bond – excellent news for offshore investors with £10,000 or more to invest.

The account now boasts a yearly rate of 4.00% (0.25%), while monthly options have also been amended.

The product is now one of the market leaders within its field, and the ability to close the bond after six months (subject to penalty) adds to its appeal in uncertain times.

The account has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
