NatWest has improved the rates paid on its one and two year fixed rate bonds to startling effect.

The one year version now pays 3.40% and its two year counterpart 3.80%, with both rates high enough to see them rank amongst the best in their respective fields.

It must be noted that a lower rate of 2.00% is paid until the term starts on 29 November and that a NatWest instant access account is required to open the accounts.

Nevertheless, four out of five Moneyfacts stars are richly deserved.
