HSBC has tweaked its fixed rate bond range to give savers an extra boost.

Rates have been increased significantly making the all options available far more competitive.

It means the one year and 18 month options, paying up to 3.00% and 3.30% respectively, are now both amongst the market leaders in their fields.

Earlier access to the money is permitted for the loss of 90 days' interest, if less than £50K is invested.

Savers must have or open a HSBC savings account to take advantage of the deal, but this seems unlikely to put most people off.

Sure to appeal to those happier saving with a well known high street name, these savings deals earn four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
