FirstSave has overhauled its fixed rate savings offerings to startling effect.

Its One Year Fixed Rate Bond now pays 3.40% to move into the top five ranking bonds over this term, while the two year bond at 3.50% has also improved its position.

Meanwhile, the firm has expanded its portfolio with the launch of a new six month bond which pays 3.00% and a new two year loyalty bond for existing customers at 3.60%.

All the bonds offer a monthly option, at a slightly reduced rate, which is ideal for savers looking for an income from their investment.

However, early access to funds is not allowed, making it essential that savers can live without their money for the specified term.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
