Manchester BS has expanded its savings portfolio with the launch of a new Fixed Rate Cash ISA.

Paying 4.51% yearly, the five year fixed term cash ISA is the leader in its field.

A minimum investment of £1K is required, while the ability to make one penalty free withdrawal for up to 25% of the balance is a plus.

Further withdrawals are, however, subject to 30 days' notice and 90 days' loss of interest, as are transfers out.

Additions are permitted, while transfers in are accepted until the end of January 2010.

Likely to prove popular if you're looking for a long term home for your tax free allowance, this product earns four out five Moneyfacts stars.
