Coventry BS has re-entered the fixed rate bond market with a cracking rate for savers.

The Fixed Bond is a two year product maturing on 31.08.12 which pays a yearly rate of 4.25% (4.17% monthly) on a minimum investment of £1.

No early access is permitted, although additions are allowed whilst the issue remains open or for seven days after the initial investment, whichever is longer.

This rate is equal to market leading offer in the two year arena and sits just below the leading three year deals.

Investors must ensure they can commit to funds from the outset, but the low minimum investment and possibility for additions adds to the product's appeal.

Rachel Haworth, head of marketing at the Coventry said: "Everyone wants the best return possible on their savings and we are confident that our new fixed bond with a highly competitive rate of 4.25% will be very popular with savers."

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
