British merchant banker Close Brothers has relaunched its popular Premium Gold Bonds.

Both a three and a four year account have been introduced, both of which pay 3.75% yearly. A minimum investment of £10K is required for either and no early access or further additions are permitted.

The bonds have a maximum investment but at £10 million, only the very luckiest consumers are likely to reach the Premium Gold's limit!

As these are limited offers, clients will have to act fast to take advantage of the highly competitive bonds. They are likely to prove popular and sit within the top five of their respective fields.

The products earn four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
