Northern Rock (Guernsey) Limited has re-entered the fixed rate bond market after a seven month absence with a highly competitive one year bond.

Paying 3.40% yearly (3.10% monthly), the Offshore Fixed Rate Capped Bond Issue 1 is amongst the best one year bonds available and should prove popular with people looking for an offshore investment.

Requiring a minimum investment of £10K, additional investments of at least £1K are welcomed whilst the issue remains open.

Early access to funds is permitted, albeit with the loss of 60 days' interest.

The excellent rate means this product earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
