Leeds Building Society has shown savers the way by increasing the rates available on its three and five year fixed rate ISAs.

Standing out in particular is the five year deal which now pays 4.05%, high enough to position it amongst the market leaders for both new and transferring ISAs.

The low minimum investment of £1 and the ability to access a quarter of the initial investment without the loss of interest adds to its appeal.

The account also offers the flexibility of allowing additional investments and further withdrawals on the loss of 180 days' interest, an unusual feature for a fixed rate ISAs.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars are fully deserved.
