Principality BS has launched issue 130 of its Two Year Over 50s e-Bond which, offering a rate of 4.00% yearly (3.93% monthly), has leapt to the very top of its field.

As its name suggests, this internet operated account is only open to those of a certain age and runs for a period of two years.

With no early access allowed, it's imperative that the minimum investment of £5K is definitely not needed for the duration of the plan.

As no further additions allowed throughout the term, you'll also need to invest the full amount you think you can spare when the account is opened.

The market leading rate and a highly competitive monthly return means this product has been rewarded four out five Moneyfacts stars.
