Halifax has served up a treat for savers looking to put their money away somewhere safe for the medium term.

Its Guaranteed Reserve two year fixed rate bond now pays 4.30% yearly, sending it towards the upper reaches of the market, while the three year version paying 4.55% compares favourably too.

Both bonds can be closed early after six months have elapsed, although a penalty means it won't be a decision to be taken lightly.

A monthly option is also available, aimed at those wanting to supplement their income regularly.

Competitive rates and the option for early access means these products earn four out five Moneyfacts stars.
