Rothschild Reserve has launched a new postal operated account that leads the way in its field.

The fixed term product matures on 6.7.11, paying 4.35% yearly (4.27% monthly) on a minimum investment of £20K.

The bond should prove popular with clients happy to undertake transactions by post and the high minimum investment is unlikely to deter serious investors.

Its high rate is the best available in the two year fixed rate market, while a competitive monthly option will also broaden its appeal.

While potential investors will need to be sure how much they can commit – no early access or further additions are permitted – this new product is still worth four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
