Alliance & Leicester has introduced a couple of eye-catching products within its new range of fixed rate bonds and ISAs.

The rate of its one year fixed rate ISA has been increased by 0.20% and now pays 3.00% yearly on a minimum investment of £500, just 0.10% less than the market leader.

It also allows early access and transfers out on 60 days' notice, and the transfer of previous years' ISAs, which will add to its appeal.

The new two year fixed rate bond continues to pay a competitive 4.01% at £100K but has been tweaked to pay 3.80% on £30K. No additions are permitted and early access on closure is subject to 120 days' loss of interest.

The products have been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
