Cheshire BS has soared to new heights by increasing rates across its range of fixed rate bonds.

All variations of the bonds now offer competitive rates, but it is the three year fixed rate bond which is the star of the show.

Having enjoyed the largest rise in its rate, this deal now pays 4.10% yearly (4.03% monthly), and sits just below the market leaders in its field.

As with most fixed rate bonds, early access to funds is not permitted, making it essential that investors are able to tie up their money for the full term.

A welcome addition to the fixed rate bond market, these products earn four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
