Many experts are predicting an increase in the Bank of England base rate towards the latter part of this year. Savers with a cautious approach to investing may be interested in fixed rate bonds with a term of a year or less, as this minimises the risk of being left on a fixed rate when interest rates rise. Here are the current top six month fixed rate bond accounts.
