The Royal Bank of Scotland has bucked the recent downward trend in the fixed rate market by increasing the interest paid on its one year account by up to 0.75%.

The Fixed Rate Bond is a branch based account that pays 2.50% yearly on a minimum investment of £5K, 2.75% on £25K and 3.00% on £50K.

No further additions are permitted, although early access is allowed, subject to 90 days' loss of interest. Bank base rate (currently 0.50%) is paid until the term starts on 6 September 2010.

Investors must have or open a Royal Bank of Scotland instant access savings or current account (not Cash ISA or Direct Saver).

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
