Julian Hodge Bank has reviewed its savings range, with ISA, bond and business rates rising by up to 0.25%.

The one and two-year fixed rate bonds now pay 3.25% yearly, while there are also one and two-year ISA options paying the same rate for those who want to make the most of tax-free saving.

The one-year ISA is now well within the top ten of ISAs for this term. Transfers in are allowed, which should appeal to those with a growing ISA pot.

Earlier closure is permitted, but this does incur an interest penalty.

For those looking for a home for their business savings, the one and two year Capital Millennium bonds should appeal. Both options pay 3.25% yearly, or 3.20% monthly. This review sees the one-year option enter the Business Fixed Rate Best Buy chart.

As is common with most short-term bonds, earlier access to funds is not permitted.

For a stellar improvement, four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
