Wesleyan Bank has pulled out all the stops with the launch of a new range of fixed rate accounts.

Increasing the rates considerably across all three of its products, each has seen its competitiveness improve in their respective fields.

The One Year Fixed Rate Deposit account pays 3.50% yearly, the two year version 4.00%, and the three year account 4.50%.

All accounts are internet operated and require a minimum investment of £1K, while early access is allowed for the loss of 180 days of interest.

The hugely improved rates see Wesleyan earn four out five Moneyfacts stars.
