Yorkshire Building Society has launched a three year branch based bond which should knock the socks off savers.

Paying 4.15% yearly, it equals the market leaders for a three year term so should prove popular with medium term savers.

The monthly option paying 4.07% may prove attractive to those savers looking for an income from their investment.

A minimum investment of £1K is required, but as there is no flexibility to access funds during the term, savers must be confident they can commit the money until maturity.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars is no mean feat for this impressive bond, which is also available under the Barnsley Building Society banner.
