Halifax has improved the return paid on its five year fixed rate ISA to enhance its excellent reputation even further.

Now paying 4.40%, the ISA has consolidated its position as a market leader in the long term fixed rate ISA field.

Savers will be happy that the account accepts transfers in from existing ISAs.

If any withdrawals have to be made, the account must be closed and 365 days' of interest will be lost.

Nevertheless, four out of five Moneyfacts stars are richly deserved.
