Leeds BS has launched a new issue of its market leading long term ISA.

Issue 17 of its 5 Year Fixed Rate ISA pays a yearly rate of 4.60% on a minimum investment of £1, maturing in 30.4.15.

Withdrawals of up to 25% of investment permitted without notice or loss, then further withdrawals or closure on 180 days' loss of interest.

Transfers out are subject to 180 days' loss of interest, while further additions are permitted for the current tax year only. Transfers in are allowed.

Extending the end date on this new issue is good news for savers wishing to invest their ISA allowance over a longer term.

Offering a market leading rate and the possibility of withdrawals, this ISA is well worth four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
