Barnsley BS has hit the competition for six with the launch of its Three Year Online Bond.

A fixed term internet operated account, the bond pays 4.80% yearly (4.70% monthly) to leave it high up the rankings in the three year fixed rate bond market.

A minimum investment of £100 is required, with further additions allowed while the issue remains open.

However, early access to your funds is not permitted before the end of the term, making it essential to work out exactly how much money you can afford to set aside.

The excellent rate means this product earns four out five Moneyfacts stars.
