Barclays Bank has launched a new issue of its Golden ISA, paying a far improved rate.

The Golden ISA Issue 2 is an instant access cash product that pays a rate of 3.06% monthly on a minimum investment of £1. This includes a 1.00% bonus for 12 months.

Transfers in are not permitted, but transfers out are allowed without penalty.

With a low minimum investment and easy access, this offering could prove attractive for those with new ISA money to invest as it sits just below the market leaders.

Clients would be well advised to review their position in a year's time when the bonus period expires.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
