If you can afford to not have access to your savings for 12 months or longer, a fixed rate bond can earn you more interest than a notice or easy access savings account.
When taking out a fixed rate bond, you are making an agreement with the bank or building society that you won't withdraw your cash for a specified period of time. Most 1 year fixed rate bonds will not let you have access to your money once it’s been deposited, until the bond matures.
The recent trend in the 1 year fixed rate bond market is for the best rates to be offered by smaller, relatively unknown banks.
All banks and building societies listed by moneyfacts.co.uk have to be UK-licensed and part of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (or an equivalent). This means that you can be safe in the knowledge that the first £85,000 you have saved is protected, if you are worried about what would happen if a bank or building society went bust.
Best buys are a great guide to the top rates in a given market, but we’d always urge you to do you own research too before making a decision. You might feel that you’re more comfortable putting your money with a brand you are a little more familiar with – you can compare all 1 year fixed rate bonds currently available by using our savings search tool.
