United Bank UK has increased selected rates by up to 0.54%, catapulting three of its accounts into the Moneyfacts charts.
5 Year Fixed Term Deposit now has a joint market-leading rate for its sector, paying 3.01% yearly (2.97% monthly, 3.10% on maturity) after receiving the biggest rate increase of 0.54%.
Meanwhile, the two-year variant has a highly competitive rate of 2.06% yearly (2.04% monthly, 2.08% on maturity), while the three-year equivalent also has a rival-beating rate of 2.36% per annum (2.33% monthly, 2.42% on maturity), securing both top-10 positions in their respective sectors.
These accounts can be opened in branch, by post and online with a minimum deposit of £2,000. They can then be managed in branch and by post.
No further additions are permitted with these accounts, but it is possible to access funds early, albeit upon closure of the accounts and a loss of interest penalty.
These bonds all possess top 10 rates for their respective sectors, something that is sure to generate interest among savers. The five-year deal is particularly competitive, boasting a joint market-leading rate. While further additions are not allowed, there is an option to access funds early, although this will result in closure of the accounts and an interest penalty. Nevertheless, this does offer savers some flexibility, adding extra appeal to these highly competitive deals.
