Leeds BS has strengthened its savings portfolio with the launch of a new one year ISA.

Issue 21 of the fixed term branch-based cash ISA requires a minimum investment of £1 paying, 3.25% yearly.

Withdrawals of up to 25% of the investment are permitted without notice or loss of interest, then further withdrawals or closure are subject to a 90 day loss of interest, as are transfers out.

Further additions are permitted whilst the issue remains open, but transfers in are not.

Paying 3.25%, it sits within the top four short term rates and has the advantage of allowing notice and penalty free access of up to 25% of the investment.

The low minimum investment of £1 is also a plus.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
