Birmingham Midshires is riding high in the three year fixed rate bond market with the launch of two new products.

Both the postal operated account and the internet operated version pay a rate of 4.50% yearly (4.41% monthly), leaving them well placed in terms of returns in their respective fields.

Requiring a minimum investment of just £1, further additions can be made while the issue remains open.

Meanwhile, the bonds also offer the ability to make withdrawals on a sliding penalty scale: early access is allowed in the first year on the loss of 270 days' interest, in the second on the loss of 180 days and in the third on the loss of 90 days.

The four out five Moneyfacts stars these products have been awarded are richly deserved.
