Bank of Cyprus has just launched a series of very competitive fixed rate bonds .

The bonds range from nine months (paying 3.45% on maturity), fifteen months (3.92% on maturity), to eighteen months, (4.04% on maturity). There is also the option of either a two or a three year bond paying 4.00% yearly.

The really great news is that the bonds can be opened with a minimum of £1, making them very accessible. However, once you open the account you won't be allowed to withdraw your money early so make sure you have other available money in case of an emergency.

We rated these bonds four out of five Moneyfacts star based on the minimum investment and the interest offered.
