Principality BS has relaunched its ISA range, with its one year product proving to be the pick of the bunch.

The 1 Year Fixed Rate ISA Issue 79 pays a rate of 3.10% on maturity on a minimum investment of £500.

Earlier access can only be made on closure of the account and is subject to a 90 day loss of interest. Transfers out are also subject to a 90 day loss of interest, while transfers in are not accepted.

At 3.10%, the one year ISA is amongst the market leaders for its term, although this is for the 2011/12 tax allowance only as transfers in are not permitted. The fact that early closure is permitted on 90 days' loss of interest is also a plus.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
