Close Brothers has just launched the second issue of 'Premium Gold 2', a fixed term account paying a headline 5% interest per year.

The account is available for minimum investments of £5,000 up to £1m, but beware, once invested, the money will not be accessible until the end of the two year term.

Interestingly, even though this is not a regular savings account, you can add to your investment during the term if you wish.

5% is currently the top rate offered on a two year fixed term account and Close Brothers is expecting a lot of interest which is why it has limited the offer to only a few days. The account will be only be available until 13 January 2009.

Our tip for anyone interested in this account: don't hang about, rev up your mouse and visit our savings pages FAST!

Because of the headline interest offered, we rate this four out of five possible Moneyfacts stars.
