Chelsea BS has made positive changes to three of its products – excellent news for investors.

The new tiers are as follows: Over 50's Instant: £200 - 2.47% (no change), £25K - 2.72% (new tier +0.25%). Postal 30 Cash ISA: £10 - 2.60% (nc), £6K - 3.00% (nc), £15K - 3.25% (new tier + 0.25%), £25K - 3.50% (new tier +0.50%).

Branch Instant cash ISA: £10 - 1.60% (nc), £6K - 2.00% (nc), £15K - 2.50% (new tier +0.50%), £25K - 3.00% (new tier +1.00%), monthly option £10 - 1.59%, £6K - 1.98%, £15K - 2.47%, £25K - 2.96%.

The changes to the Over 50's account improves its position in the market and should appeal with clients with funds to invest, while the higher tiers on both cash ISAs should prove popular with clients looking to house their previous ISA subscriptions. Transfers from other providers are allowed.

The Postal 30 Day ISA at £15K is one of the highest variable rates on the market and should prove popular.

These products have all been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
