Santander has launched another issue of its popular Super Bond account, paying the same rate as its predecessor.

It is a fixed term branch based account maturing 1.3.11 with a minimum investment of £1 paying 5.00% yearly (4.89% monthly), £250K - 6.00% (5.84%). No further additions are allowed, but earlier access permitted on closure only without penalty.

Savers must invest an equal amount or more in any qualifying Santander Asset Management product (Premium & Portfolio investments as well as capital guaranteed investment) at the same time. They must hold or open an instant access savings account in order to allow transactions.

The Super Bond is also available at branches of Alliance & Leicester.

It is pleasing to see this new issue paying the same competitive rates of up to 6.00%, but clients must be certain they can commit equal funds to a qualifying investment product.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
