The Abbey National is making a one year fixed rate bond available for a limited period, with an interest rate of 6.75 percent.
To earn this high rate the bond needs an investment of at least GBP30,000, though anything from GBP1 upwards to that figure will still return a very attractive 6.35 percent. The Abbey National investment bond is on limited availability, with a window of less than a month to get money into it. Starting on August 4 the offer closes at the end of August.
The market really likes fixed rate savings bonds said an Abbey National spokesperson, hence their introduction of this particular one now. Anyone interested is advised to act quickly to ensure availability.
