Britannia International has launched a new offshore account that sits within the top five in its field.

The 1 Year Fixed Rate Deposit is a branch and postal operated account paying a rate of 2.75% (2.45% monthly) on a minimum investment of £5K, £50K – 3.25% (2.95%). No early access or further additions are permitted.

It is good to see Britannia enhancing its one year bond range; paying up to 3.25%, the account is far more competitive than its predecessor and will appeal to hose looking to invest in the short term.

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