Manchester BS has stolen a march on its rivals, with a double product launch that will contend for honours.

The Premier ISA Issue 5 is a 60 day notice branch and postal operated cash ISA with a minimum investment of £1K paying 2.71% yearly. The rate includes 0.70% bonus for 15 months.

No earlier access is permitted and transfers out are subject to 60 days' loss of interest. Transfers in and additions are allowed.

The Regular Saver ISA is an instant access cash ISA with a minimum monthly investment of £100 (maximum £425) paying 0.50% yearly.

A conditional bonus of 3.50% is paid yearly provided that no more than one payment is missed per annum. No more than one withdrawal and one deposit can be made per month.

Transfers out can be made without penalty but transfers in are not permitted.

Both products are leaders in their respective fields and have been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
