Saga has launched a new account aimed at savers aged 50 or over who are comfortable with banking online.

The Saga Internet Saver is a notice account available to those aged 50 and over, paying a yearly rate of 2.75% (2.72% monthly) on a minimum investment of just £1.

The rate includes 1.00% bonus for the first year, and transactions must be made via a nominated account. The account is operated by Birmingham Midshires.

After 12 months the gross annual rate has an underlying guarantee to be no lower than the Bank of England base rate, with a minimum rate of 0.25% and a maximum of 8%.

Paying 2.75% this account is in the top ten in its sector, although investors should look at other options for their funds before the 12 months bonus period expires.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
