Birmingham Midshires has launched a new four year fixd rate deal that is the market leader in its field.

The 4 Year Fixed Rate Bond is a postal operated account paying a yearly rate of 4.50% (4.41% monthly).

Early access is subject to 320 days' loss of interest in year one, 270 days in year two, 180 days in year three and 90 days in year four. Additions are permitted whilst the issue remains open.

At 4.50%, the product is a market leader and should prove popular with investors. Early access, albeit subject to penalty, is also an advantage, as is the monthly interest option.

The product has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
