Manchester BS has joined the ISA season rush with the launch of a new variable rate ISA.

A 60 day notice branch and postal operated cash ISA, the Premier ISA requires a minimum investment of £1K and pays 3.01% yearly.

The rate includes a 1.00% bonus for the first 12 months, while early access to funds is not permitted.

Transfers in and additional investments are welcome, although transferring out will see the loss of 60 days' interest.

Entering the market at the top of the variable ISA market, this product earns four out five Moneyfacts stars.
