Aldermore has upped the ante and its interest rates in the fixed rate savings account market.

Offering a top rate is the newly launched one year fixed rate account paying 3.05%, while the equivalent ISA pays 2.95% to sit just below the current market leader.

Increases have been made to rates on its two and three year ISAs to leave them paying 3.25% and 3.49% respectively.

Meanwhile, the increase to its four year fixed rate account to 4.25% improves its position within the market also.

Early access to funds is not allowed, making it essential that savers will not require the money invested during the term.

However, for raising its game, these products earn an overall rating of four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
