The basics…

At 2.10%, this one-year fixed rate bond still maintains its competitive position in the top five within the Moneyfacts Best Buys.

Savers must deposit at least £1,000 in order to be eligible for this rate. This account can only be applied for online.

As is common with most short-term bonds, earlier access or additions are not allowed.

Why we like it….

Despite a rate reduction, this one-year fixed rate bond still maintains its competitive edge in the Moneyfacts Best Buys. As such it has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts Stars.
