Yorkshire BS has launched a new one year bond that is likely to appeal to savers looking for a short-term home for their funds.

The new one year fixed rate bond offers 3.50% on maturity (3.45% monthly) and can be operated in branch, by telephone or online.

No earlier access is permitted, but additions can be made whilst the issue remains open. There is a minimum investment of £1K.

At 3.50%, it sits within the top ten short term bonds and is likely to have widespread appeal.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
