Stroud & Swindon BS has returned to the fixed rate market with an absolute cracker of a two year bond.

The Fixed Rate Bond Issue 91 is a fixed term account that matures on 31.12.12 paying a yearly rate of 3.70% (3.64% monthly) on a minimum investment of £1.

A maximum investment cap of £250K is in place, early access is not permitted, and further additions are allowed whilst the issue remains open or up to seven days after the initial deposit.

This is one of the best products in the two year market, and it should prove attractive.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
