Chelsea Building Society has unveiled four new saving accounts, two of which boast the top rates for their terms.
Fixed Rate Bond and Fixed Rate e-Bond both pay a rate of 2.00% annually (1.98% monthly) to 31.8.15. The Fixed Rate ISA and Fixed Rate e-ISA also pay this rate, which is the top rate for their terms.
The fixed rate bonds need a minimum investment of £1,000, which cannot be accessed prior to maturity. The e-bond is opened and managed online, while the regular bond can be opened in branch or by post and operated by the same channels. While early access is not allowed, further additions are welcome.
The ISA accounts need just £100 initially. Further additions and transfers in are permitted, and early access is also an option, although this results in the closure of the account and the loss of 60 days' interest. The regular ISA can be opened and managed in branch and by post, while the e-ISA can be opened and accessed by the internet only.
The ISA accounts possess the top rates for their terms, which make them very competitive in the market. Added appeal is provided by the option to access funds early, subject to closure of the account and the loss of 60 days' interest.
