NatWest has relaunched two of its ISAs which allow savers to transfer in their existing funds from another provider.

Both the one and two year Preferential Fixed Rate ISAs pay a competitive 3.35% and 3.90% respectively, ensuring they are market leaders when compared against similar term fixed ISAs.

However, it should be noted that the variable ISA rate is paid until the term starts on 4 April.

The ISAs are also available from Royal Bank of Scotland.

As is common with fixed terms, access is on closure only subject to a penalty.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
