ICICI Bank UK has introduced four new fixed rate bonds, all of which take the top spot in their respective fields.

Consumers can take their pick from two, three, four and five year fixed term, internet operated accounts , which all require a minimum investment of £1K.

The two and three year options pay a rate of 4.20% yearly, while the four and five year products pay a rate of 4.00% and 4.40% respectively.

A HiSAVE savings account will be opened in conjunction with all bonds to receive interest and matured funds.

As with most fixed rates, early access and further additions are not permitted. This should not affect thr popularity of these accounts, which have all been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
