🔔 Further fixed rate and easy access improvements

27th April 2018

The final day of the week came with a bang, as Vanquis Bank and United Trust Bank launched market-leading fixed rate bonds and Bank of Cyprus UK launched a new version of its Online Easy Access Account.

 

Vanquis Bank has returned to the top spot in our five year fixed rate bond table, paying 2.70% gross/AER*.

This account now pays the highest interest rate we have seen on a five year fixed rate bond for nearly two years.

 

In the shorter one year table, we have another new market-leading rate launched today.

United Trust Bank's new one year bond pays 1.90% gross/AER, claiming the leading position.

 

Meanwhile, Bank of Cyprus UK’s latest version of its Online Easy Access Account* holds joint-second position in our easy access best buy table with Shawbrook Bank, both paying 1.25% gross/AER.

Although both accounts are available to open online, a key difference to be aware of is the Bank of Cyprus UK account includes a bonus for the first 12 months, after which, the rate will drop significantly.

 

In contrast, both accounts that offer the leading rate of 1.30% gross/AER (RCI Bank*  and Kent Reliance), do not include an introductory bonus.

 

For further information and other leading rates currently available, please refer to our best buy tables.

†High interest current accounts often have a number of conditions attached to qualify for the headline rate. Please ensure you carefully read the terms and conditions before proceeding. Many of these current accounts do not require customers to switch their main account.

*We are occasionally paid by some providers if you click through from our Best Buy Tables and open a savings or current account with them. We will never accept a payment that compromises in any way our independent, whole of market approach to providing information on savings products. For clarity we will indicate those companies who remunerate us with an asterisk (*).
