Ipswich BS has launched a new issue of its Heritage Bond, bucking the recent trend of downward revisions on new products.

The Heritage Bond 33 is a fixed term account maturing on 31.5.11 with a minimum investment of £1K (£25K for monthly option) paying 2.75% yearly, £20K – 3.00%. Monthly option pays the same rate.

Earlier access is only permitted on closure and is subject on 90 days' loss of interest. Additions are allowed whilst issue remains open.

At 3.00% for investments of £20K or more, it is amongst the market leading short term bonds and should fare well.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
