Newcastle BS will have savers whistling a happy 'toon' thanks to its new regular savings ISA.

Requiring a minimum monthly investment of £100 (maximum £500), the Balance Builder ISA pays 3.40% yearly, so long as ten payments are made per anniversary year.

Failure to comply sees the rate drop to 2.00%.

The flexibility of unlimited withdrawals and the ability to make further additions up to the maximum ISA limit both add to the appeal of the account.

Paying a highly competitive variable rate in a very limited market, four out of five Moneyfacts stars are well deserved.
