The Co-operative Bank has increased the rates paid on its one and two year bonds.

The one year bond product now offers a rate of 3.00% (+0.19%), while the two year offers 3.50% (+0.19%).

Monthly options will also increase, but all other terms and conditions remain unchanged.

These 0.19% increases in the one and two year bonds leaves them paying amongst the market leading rates in their respective fields - great news for investors looking for an ethical provider.

As with many bonds, there is no flexibility for access or additions during the term so investors will need to be certain what funds they can commit from the outset.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
