Capital One Savings has reduced the minimum investment required on its base beater savings account to £1 (previously £500).

In further good news for its customers, the rate of its Flexi Saver Issue 1 account has been increased by 0.30% and now pays 2.65%.

The move means the account is one of the market leaders although potential clients must remember that the rate does include a 1% bonus for the first year, after which time it may no longer be competitive.
