Saga has unveiled a new range of fixed rate bonds aimed specifically at the over 50s.

Paying 4.20%, the three year fixed rate savings account is only just shy of being the best deal in its field.

The minimum investment required is £1, while additional investments can be made whilst the issue remains open.

Early access to funds is allowed, albeit with the loss of up to 270 days' interest.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars are well deserved.
