Close Brothers has launched two fixed term savings accounts that both enter their respective fields as a market leader.

The two year premium gold account can be operated by post, telephone or fax and pays 4.50% on anniversary on a minimum investment of £10K.

The three year premium gold is operated in the same way as its two year counterpart and also has a minimum investment of £10K, although the rate is slightly higher, paying 4.75% on anniversary.

No early access or further additions are permitted on either account

However, these products offer substantially higher rates than their competitors and are likely to attract investors. The premium gold fixed term accounts have been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
