Coventry BS has given silver savers throughout the country reason to cheer with the relaunch of its popular 50 plus eSave account.

The no notice internet account, which is available to those aged 50 and over, pays a yearly rate of 3.25% (3.20% monthly) on a minimum investment of £1.

The rate is fixed for the first year, after which it is guaranteed to equal the base rate of interest. The account has a maximum investment cap of £250K.

This account leads the way in the 50 Plus field and sits just below the top internet accounts available to everyone.

Clients should bear the likely rate drop after the first year when the fixed period ends.

The 50 Plus eSave has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
