Manchester BS has unveiled a five star ISA certain to appeal to savers.

Paying 3.10%, the Premier ISA offers a market leading variable rate for the discerning tax-efficient ISA saver.

That withdrawals and transfers out from the account are allowed either after 35 days' notice or for the loss of 35 days' interest if you can't wait is a welcome option.

A minimum investment of £1K is required, while the account also accepts transfers in from other ISA providers.

However, it is worth considering that the rate includes a bonus of 1.50% for 12 months, making a review of the account's competitiveness essential in a year's time.

For offering a top rate and a wealth of options, this account has been awarded the full five out of five Moneyfacts stars.
