Britannia BS has delivered a boost to its ISA customers by boosting the rates offered on its one and two year fixed products.

Its one year fixed is operated in branch and by post, paying 3.00% yearly on a minimum investment of £3.6K.

Its two year is operated in the same way and now pays a rate of 3.40% on a minimum investment of £3.6K.

It is good to see these increase, especially at the outset of a new ISA season. Both products are now amongst the market leaders in their respective arenas.

New customers will have to invest a sizeable amount but clients looking to transfer in previous years' allowances benefit from a reduced minimum investment of £1.

Both products are well worth four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
