Santander has launched a new, short term bond that will reward new savers with a leading rate of interest.

The 1 Year New Money Fixed Rate Bond pays a yearly rate of 2.60% (2.57% monthly) on a minimum investment of just £1. Deposits of £10K or more are rewarded with a rate of 3.01% (2.97%).

No early access or further additions are permitted, so savers should be sure they can afford to invest. Any funds must be new to Santander.

This extension of Santander's fixed rate product range offers investors who can rustle up new funds one of the leading one year rates – particularly good news in a market that has seen many falls recently.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
