AA has launched a new five year bond that is likely to catch the eye of savers looking to tie up their funds for the long term.

The 5 Year Fixed Rate Savings is a postal operated account which pays a rate of 4.40% for five years.

The account requires a minimum investment of £1 and additions are allowed whilst the issue remains open. Earlier access is subject to up to a 365 day loss of interest.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
