State Bank of India has had a grand idea with the launch of a new savings account where the rate is fixed for 1,000 days.

Paying 4.10%, it sits amongst the market leaders in the medium term savings market.

A minimum investment of £5K is required, while savers must have or open a State Bank of India savings or current account.

As is becoming more common with savings bonds, no withdrawals or additional investments are allowed during the term.

Offering savers an alternative to a straight two or three year bond, this account has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
