Rate Alert: New market-leading account

12th December 2017

As the lead-up to Christmas is in full swing, we have seen a slowdown with very few new best buys hitting the market.




However, the drought was ended today with United Trust Bank making a play for the top spot.




The new version of the provider's 1 Year Bond takes the lead, paying 1.87% gross/AER.




This just edges out Atom Bank and Investec Bank from the top position, with the duo paying 1.85% gross/AER.




For more information on the accounts above and other options available, please click on the links below to view our best buy tables.



If you would like any help with your savings, call us today on 0800 011 9705. We'd love to hear from you.

†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 (*).

^Deposits held with RCI Bank are covered up to the value of €100,000 by the FGDR, which is the French equivalent of the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). For more information on this, please call one of our advisers.
