Skipton BS has come up with the goods again with the launch of its latest fixed rate bond.

A five year fixed term account maturing 30 November 2014, it ranks highly amongst its peers in paying 5.16% yearly (5.01% monthly).

The minimum investment is £500 with additions welcomed whilst the issue remains open.

However, early access to your funds is not allowed, making it vital to make sure you can afford to live without your money for the term.

A highly competitive rate sees this product earn four out five Moneyfacts stars.
