Published: 25/02/2021

There was little change at the top of the ISA charts this week, which will be a disappointment for savers hoping to see ISA rates increase in the build up to the ISA season. Although ISA rates have remained low, time is running out for savers to use up the 2020/21 ISA allowance of £20,000, so should consider taking advantage of the best rates available before the ISA deadline for this tax year ends.

Savers should also note that the rates below are the best rates available at 2pm on Thursday 25 February 2021 and, although correct at the time of publishing, they may not be available after this time.

Savers looking for an easy access savings account will be disappointed to see that the top rate currently being offered in our charts is below the current inflation rate of 0.7%, so they may want to consider a more competitive notice account or even a one year bond instead.

ISA season is only weeks away but savers hoping to start seeing rates increase will be disappointed with data released this week, which found that ISA rates remain at record lows. There were no changes at the top of the ISA charts this week and, as a result, savers looking to lock into a fixed rate ISA will find that the top rate currently stands at 1.30% AER, while those looking for an easy access ISA can get the best rate of 0.60% AER.

Savers should also note that the rates below are the best rates available at 12.30pm on Thursday 18 February 2021 and, although correct at the time of publishing, they may not be available after this time.
