Buckinghamshire BS' Fixed Rate Cash ISA paying 3.26% yearly is an offer fit for a Queen!

A branch and postal operated fixed term ISA maturing on 31.7.11 and requiring a minimum investment of £100, it pays less than 0.50% below the market leading fixed rate ISA and sits just outside the top five two year fixed rate ISAs.

Although withdrawals are not permitted, you're still able to close the account early subject to 180 days' loss of interest. Transfers out are also allowed but attract the same penalty.

Transfers in of previous ISA funds are accepted as long as the issue remains open, while further additions are permitted for the tax year 2009/10.

A rate deserving of a crown means this product has been appointed four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
