West Bromwich BS has announced the launch of a new fixed term internet operated savings account that wipes the floor with the competition.

The E Bond 23 will enter the short term fixed rate bond market at the top, paying 4.30% on maturity at 30.9.2010 (4.22% monthly).

A rather steep minimum investment of £50K is needed to utilise the monthly option, although it's £5K otherwise.

As with most fixed rates, earlier access and further additions are not permitted.

However, the extended term of this new issue (16 months rather than 12) may add to its appeal.

Four out five Moneyfacts stars is this products well deserved reward.
