ICICI Bank UK is to increase the rates of selected Hisave fixed rate accounts.

The one year product will now pay a rate of 4.00% (+0.10%) and the two year now offers a rate of 4.35% (+0.15%), as does the three year offer.

These increases in the short and medium term categories are great news for those who are happy with fixed rates and internet accounts .

While there is no flexibility in terms of additions or withdrawals, these bonds are all market leaders in their respective fields and have been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.

The bank will also be making changes to its Hisave Savings internet account rate, which has been reduced by 0.45% to 2.00%.

It is bad news for investors but it remains one of the top five no notice online products without a bonus and, as such, it retains its four star rating.
