Close Brothers Savings has increased the rates paid on selected fixed rate bonds by up to 0.15%, cementing its two and three-year deals in the Moneyfacts charts.
The two-year variant of Fixed Term Deposit now pays a competitive yearly rate of 2.25% while its three-year counterpart pays an equally competitive 2.50% yearly, allowing both to hold coveted places in the charts.
Both accounts can be managed by post and online and require an initial investment of at least £10,000.
As is common in the fixed rate sector, neither additions nor early access to funds are permitted. Savers must therefore be happy to lock their money away for the full duration of their chosen term.
The rate increases to these bonds have boosted their competitiveness and sealed their chart positions. As a result, savers who are happy to lock their money away are likely to pay a great deal of attention to these eye-catching accounts.
