Wesleyan Bank has re-entered the fixed rate market after an absence of just over five months with the launch of this range of fixed term deposits to suit all needs.

The stand-out products are the one and four year fixed rate bonds.

The one-year account pays 3.55%, while its four year counterpart offers savers 4.25%. Both are operated online and allow early access on a 180 day loss of interest penalty.

No further additions are allowed, while a minimum of £1K must be invested (maximum £100K).

Both products sit within the top ten in their class and are well worth four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
