Coventry Building Society has re-entered the long term fixed bond market with an account that matures at the end of April 2016.

Paying 4.75%, it is a market leader in its field and will almost certainly appeal to savers wanting a high rate of return over the long term.

A monthly option is also available which pays 4.65%, an attractive offer for those looking to supplement their income.

Early access to funds is allowed, albeit with a hefty 180 day interest penalty.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars is the reward for this excellent fixed rate bond.
