Marsden Building Society has been rewarded for making a bold move into the internet savings market.

For those savers prepared to transact via the web, the Esaver savings account offers a competitive rate of 2.10% yearly, high enough to see it feature amongst the top ten no notice internet accounts around.

Also good to see is that the rate will not drop below 1.60% before 31 December 2011, although savers will need to keep an eye on the market to ensure the account does remain competitive.

Requiring a minimum investment of £250, four out of five Moneyfacts stars are well deserved for this debutant.
