Principality BS has made a switch for the better for savers by replacing its four year fixed rate bond with a market leading five year deal.

Paying 4.85%, the bond requires a minimum investment of £500 and offers the flexibility of allowing additional investments while the issue remains open.

The account can also be closed early, albeit with a hefty 360 days' interest penalty.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars are well deserved.
