Coventry BS has extended its product range with a couple of short term fixed rate bonds.

The first is a seven month fixed term account which pays a rate of 3.57% (3.54% monthly) on 31.12.2009, when the account matures. The minimum investment is a lowly £1.

The second is a 15 month account which matures on 31.8.10. A yearly rate of 4.00% (3.93% monthly) is paid on a minimum investment of £1.

Both bonds allow early access, albeit with 90 days' loss of interest. Further additions are permitted into the accounts, both of which have a maximum investment cap of £250K.

These accounts provide investors with some of the leading rates in the short term arena and, as such, both have been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
