Close Savings has re-entered the no notice savings market with a couple of cracking new accounts.

The Premium Gold 120 Day Notice is a 120 day notice post and telephone operated account with a minimum investment of £10K, paying 2.92% quarterly.

The Premium Gold 180 Day Notice is a 180 day notice post and telephone operated account with a minimum investment of £10K, paying 3.11% quarterly.

On both accounts: no earlier access is permitted, although additions are allowed.

Paying AERs of 2.95% and 3.15% respectively these accounts are market leaders in the long term notice market.

Both are true notice accounts as there is no facility for earlier access to funds. They are aimed at investors who do not require quick access to their money.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
