Yorkshire BS has launched a range of new bonds that are amongst the leaders in their respective fields and should prove popular with investors.

The details are as follows:

3 Year Fixed Rate Bond: a fixed term branch and telephone operated account maturing on 28.2.13 with a minimum investment of £100, paying 4.65% yearly (4.55% monthly).

3 Year Fixed Rate EBond: a fixed term internet operated account maturing on 28.2.13 with a minimum investment of £100, paying 4.65% yearly (4.55% monthly).

5 Year Fixed Rate Bond: a fixed term branch and telephone operated account maturing on 28.2.15 with a minimum investment of £100, paying 5.30% yearly (5.18% monthly).

5 Year Fixed Rate EBond: a fixed term internet operated account maturing on 28.2.15 with a minimum investment of £100, paying 5.30% yearly (5.18% monthly).

No earlier access permitted with these but additions can be made whilst issues remain open.

As always, investors should be sure about how much they can commit to, but it is good to see branch and telephone based customers benefitting from the same rate as their online counterparts.

These new bonds have been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
