The Co-operative Bank has come to the offshore party, increasing significantly its offshore fixed rate bonds.

Enjoying a boost of 2%, its three year bond now pays 4.50% and is the leader in its field.

The one year bond has jumped 1.25% to stand at 3.25%, while the two year bond has leapt 1.50% to 3.75%.

Also offering the chance to invest with an ethical provider, all accounts are sure to prove popular.

However, with no early access permitted, it is vital that funds can be committed for the full term.

A rating of four Moneyfacts stars out of five is a fitting reward for these products.
