Buckinghamshire BS has launched a new 180 day notice account that should prove popular with investors looking to supplement their income.

The Chiltern Gold Income Generator is a 180 day notice account that pays 2.80% monthly on a minimum investment of £10K. The maximum investment is £50K.

Early access is subject to 180 days' loss of interest and money must be new to the institution.

It is good to see Buckinghamshire BS expanding its savings portfolio and by having a 180 days' notice period, investors are encouraged to save rather than spend.

Instant access, albeit on 180 days' loss of interest, will also add to its appeal in these difficult times.

The Chiltern Gold Income Generator has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
