Close Savings has re-entered the fixed rate bond market after a fleeting absence with the launch of a couple of new market-leading accounts.

The 18 Month Premium Gold is an 18 month post and telephone operated fixed term account with a minimum investment of £10K paying 4.00% yearly.

The 3 Year Premium Gold is a three year post and telephone operated fixed term account with a minimum investment of £10K paying 5.00% yearly.

On both accounts: Earlier access and further additions are not permitted.

At 5.00%, the three year bond is paying a top rate for a straightforward bond and the 18 month option at 4.00% is a market-leading short term bond.

With rates this high they are unlikely to have a long shelf life so investors need to act fast. The minimum investment of £10K, whilst higher than some bonds, is not too onerous.
