Norwich & Peterborough BS is calling the shots in the savings market with the launch of a new six month fixed term bond.

The aptly named Six Month E-Bond is an internet operated account requiring a minimum investment of £1K.

Paying 3.03% on maturity, it is the leading rate over the six month term.

Further additions to the amount invested are not allowed, while early access is forbidden too.

This makes it essential that savers can definitely live without the funds they invest for the term in question.

Offering a top notch rate, this product earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
