FirstSave has launched the Postal 1 Year Fixed Rate Bond paying a competitive 3.25% on maturity.

Savers can invest between £25,000 and £2 million. Further additions and early access are not permitted, so investors must be willing to lock money away for the twelve month term.

The bond is available to savers aged 18 and over and, as the name suggests, can be operated by post. Applications to open the account can be made online, however.

This product sits comfortably within the current top ten one year bonds market and has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
