Chesham BS has expanded its portfolio of products with three new fixed rate bonds.

The pick of the bunch is the five year fixed term branch and postal operated account maturing on 31.5.14. It pays a rate of 4.50% yearly and monthly on a minimum investment of £50K.

This new issue goes straight into the position of market leader, although investors must be aware withdrawals are not allowed. Early closure is an option although such a move would trigger a 365 day loss of interest penalty.

The product has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.

Chesham has also released a one and three year bond.
