Barnsley BS has increased the rate paid on its one year fixed bonds, which now pay the highest rate in the market.

Its one year fixed rate bond and one year online bond will now pay a fixed rate of 3.20% (+0.15%).

All other terms and conditions remain unchanged.

This increase to the recently launched one year bonds is excellent news for investors looking to fix their rate in the short term.

It is also good to see that investors who had already taken up the previous rate will benefit from this increase.

The fact that additions can be made whilst the issue remains open and that application is available by internet or telephone adds to the appeal.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
