The West Brom has improved its standing in the variable rate savings market with its latest raft of account changes.

The new issues of the popular internet, branch and over 50's accounts are now far more competitive.

Standing out in particular are the internet and over 50's accounts which, in paying 2.81% yearly and 2.76% monthly respectively, are now market leaders.

The new Postal Direct account paying 2.95% is a market leading rate for notice accounts which include an introductory bonus, although it can be beaten by alternatives which do not include an introductory bonus.

The monthly option on this account will also appeal to those looking to supplement their income.

Definitely making changes for the better, four out of five Moneyfacts stars are richly deserved.
