Allied Irish Bank has made a grand re-entry to the medium term savings bond market with the launch of a two year bond.

Paying 3.80%, the bond ranks amongst the very best over the two year term.

Adding to its appeal is the fact that early access to any money invested may be permitted in an emergency.

This option is at the bank's discretion, however, and could see the loss of up to 90 days' interest.

Transactions have to be made by post, while a minimum investment of £1K is required.

But for a top notch rate and the potential to withdraw funds early, this account has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
