West Bromwich BS has launched two new EBonds.

The EBond 18 is a fixed term account maturing on 31.5.12, which pays 4.10% yearly on a minimum investment of £5K.

The EBond 19 is also a fixed term account but matures on 31.5.14. The rate of interest on the minimum investment of £5K is slightly higher at 4.20%.

Early access and further additions are not permitted on either product.

The introduction of these two accounts is certainly good news for investors that are looking for long term homes for their funds. Both pay the top rate in their perspective fields and are likely to prove popular.

These EBond stable mates have both been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
