Is a Kent Reliance fixed rate bond right for you?
Getting the most from your savings often means you have to split your money across several different financial products. For smaller sums, a savings account will usually give the best rate of interest. For example, RCI Bank and Post Office presently offer 1.30% on their savings accounts.
Fixed rate bonds give a dependable return on your money over the life of the bond. They protect your savings from losing their real world value due to the impact of inflation and you will generally see the value of your investment increase (although this is not guaranteed).
Popular types of fixed rate bonds usually run for 1 year, 2 years, 3 years or 5 years. The longer the term of the bond, the higher interest rate you will normally receive. Some providers allow you to remove funds from your account early if you need to, although you will usually pay a penalty in the form of lost interest payments.
One big plus with fixed rate bonds is you can operate them in conjunction with your current account, so you can get a return on all of your savings without interfering with your normal banking processes.
