Two new offshore savings accounts have been announced by Alliance and Leicester, called the eSaver Offshore Notice 50 and eSaver Offshore Issue 2.
The issue 2 Alliance and Leicester Offshore savings account replaces the original one and now pays interest at 6.25 percent gross p.a, variable. The Notice 50 savings account is better suited to those who can keep the money in place, or at least give good notice on withdrawals. This one offers a 6.35 percent interest rate on balances of GBP25,000 and over, again gross p.a.
An Alliance and Leicester spokesman explained that it was customer demand that had brought these new savings accounts to the market. They combine excellent interest rates with flexibility and so meet customer requirements very well.
