Nottingham BS has leapt straight to the top of the fixed rate regular savings tree.

Requiring a minimum monthly investment of £10 (maximum £100), its new fixed term branch based account pays 5.00% on maturity at 1 February 2011.

Early access to the funds invested is not allowed, but up to two monthly payments can be missed over the term of the account.

However, if you've suddenly got a bit more spare cash to hand, additional payments are permitted provided the monthly maximum is not exceeded.

Entering as the market leader in its field, this account earns four out five Moneyfacts stars.
