Britannia has unveiled a new one year fixed rate bond ideal for savers looking for a competitive rate from an established high street name.

Paying 2.81%, it sits just outside the very best one year bonds around, and so should prove popular with savers who prefer the more personal touch of branch banking.

As with most short term bonds, earlier access to funds is not permitted, so it is essential that savers make sure they can live without their money for the term of the product.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars are well deserved.
