Wesleyan Bank has joined the ISA party with its revamped range of fixed term internet operated cash ISAs.

The one, two and three year versions of the account now pay 3.00%, 3.50% and 3.75% yearly respectively.

Meanwhile, a rate of 4.00% is available on the newly introduced four year account and 4.50% can be found over five years, leaving them both riding high in their respective fields.

Each account requires a minimum investment of £3.6K and while further additions are not permitted, transfers in most certainly are.

Early access to the funds is allowed on the loss of 90 days' interest for the one and two year accounts and of 180 days' interest for the rest.

For making a very favourable impression, these products earn four out five Moneyfacts stars.
