The new range of Fixed Rate Cash ISAs from Northern Rock is a savings gem.

Requiring a minimum investment of £500, its Five Year Fixed Rate Cash ISA pays 4.25% yearly, high enough to rank amongst the upper echelons of fixed rate offerings.

Further additions of at least £250 are allowed up to 30 days after the issue closes, while transfers in are allowed too.

Withdrawals and transfers out are also permitted, although 180 days' loss of interest is a considerable price to pay.

On maturity, instant access to funds is allowed for 30 days, before converting into a 30 Day ISA .

The impressive rate makes it crystal clear that four out of five Moneyfacts stars are well deserved.
