Stroud & Swindon BS has launched a new notice account that is likely to catch the eye of investors.

The 90 Day Notice Account pays a market leading rate of 2.90% yearly (2.86% monthly) on a minimum investment of £1K. The rate includes a 0.90% AER bonus for 12 months.

Early access is allowed, which will add to its appeal, although this is subject to a 90 days' interest penalty. There is also a minimum transaction in branch of £10 and £100 for post and telephone.

Clients must choose how to operate the account when it is opened.

This new account is a welcome addition to the short term notice market, and four out of five Moneyfacts stars are well deserved.
