Northern Rock has delivered a boost to the children's savings market with the launch of a new fixed rate bond.

The Little Rock Fixed Rate Bond is a fixed term account that matures on 1 September 2013, paying a yearly rate of 5.00% (4.70% monthly).

No early access is permitted, although additions can be made whilst the issue remains open.

Holders must have an adult named as a trustee.

This bond should prove popular with parents wishing to invest for their child's future and four out of five Moneyfacts stars are well deserved.
