Close Savings has extended its portfolio with the addition of a 180 day notice account that pays an attractive rate to those willing to invest a fair sum of cash.

The Premium Gold 180 Day Notice is a post and telephone operated account that pays a quarterly rate of 3.11% on a minimum investment of £10K.

No early access or further additions are permitted and transfers must be made via a nominated account. A reduced rate of 0.50% is paid on balances below £10K.

Investors must be sure they can commit to the necessary funds to gain the headline rate offered by this account.

However, those able to do so will benefit from a cracking rate that ensures this savings product is worth four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
