United Bank UK has boosted the rate of its one-year bond by 0.16%, propelling it into a market-leading position for its term.

The basics…

1 Year Fixed Term Deposit now pays a top rate of 1.91% on maturity (1.89% monthly).

The finer details…

This account can be opened and operated in branch and by post with a minimum deposit of £2,000.

Although further additions are not allowed, it is possible to access funds early with the bank's discretion. This will result in closure of the account and the loss of 90 days' interest.

A business version is also available for business owners, paying a slightly reduced rate of 1.81% on maturity (1.80% monthly).

Why we like it…

The rate boost has moved this account to the very top of its sector, something that is sure to be noticed by savers. The possibility of early closure is an added bonus, although savers should remember that doing so will require permission and a loss of interest.
