West Bromwich BS has unveiled a new three year guaranteed bond that boasts a market leading rate.

The fixed term account matures on 30.4.12 and requires a minimum investment of £1K, paying 3.91% yearly. No early access or further additions to the account are permitted.

This product is highly competitive and it is encouraging to see West Bromwich BS bring a market leading account to the table. As is typical with a number of fixed rate bonds, no early access or further additions are allowed.

Potential investors are unlikely to be put off by this, but should act fast to take advantage of a bond that might not be around for too long in the current climate.

The product earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
