Is a Birmingham Midshires fixed rate bond right for you?

Savings accounts usually offer the best rates of interest on smaller sums, but these rates only apply up to a certain balance and/or have limit on the maximum balance permitted in the account.

For example, RCI Bank and Post Office are offering 1.30% on their savings accounts.

If you want to see a return on larger deposits, fixed rate bonds can provide an ideal way to do this. By transferring the portion of your savings not currently earning interest into a fixed rate bond, you can ensure that you are getting the most out of your money.

Fixed rates bonds, like those provided by Birmingham Midshires, offer a dependable return for the life of the bond. This helps prevent your savings from losing their value relative to inflation and means their real world value should increase over the life of the bond.

Commonly, fixed rate bonds have a term of 1 year, 2 years, 3 years or 5 years. The longer the bond runs for, the higher interest rate you will usually be offered. Although some accounts will allow you to take money out of your bond before it matures, you will likely incur a penalty for this in the form of lost interest payments.

One key advantage of fixed rate bonds is that they allow you to earn a return on the whole of your savings while still keeping your existing current account. This makes the process relatively hassle-free as it offers no disruption to your regular banking.
