Northern Rock has bucked the savings trend by keeping the rate on its Fixed Rate ISA unchanged, while most around them are dropping theirs.

Its one year fixed term cash ISA paying 2.75% yearly requires a minimum investment of £500.

Flexibility comes in the form of the account allowing withdrawals, although an interest penalty is payable.

However, savers will need to decide how much they wish to invest at the outset as this cash ISA is subject to withdrawal at any time and only offers the chance of making further additions to the account up to 30 days after the issue is closed.

Remaining amongst the top tier of one year fixed term cash ISAs available, and being open for ISA transfers too, this product earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars
