Is a Lloyds fixed rate bond right for you?

How can you tell if you are getting the best possible deal on your savings? If you would like to earn the highest available interest rate, a savings account will usually offer this, for example RCI Bank and Post Office presently offer 1.30% on their savings accounts.

It should be noted that interest in savings accounts is only paid up to a certain deposit threshold You will generally earn no interest on any balance above this threshold. In addition, the majority of savings accounts come with a limit to the amount you can deposit. 

Fixed rate bonds allow you to earn a guaranteed rate of interest for the life of the bond, which will most commonly be 1 year, 2 years, 3 years or 5 years. The longer the bond lasts for, the higher the interest rate you will usually be offered.

Putting your savings into a fixed rate bond means you won’t usually be able to use that money for anything else until the bond matures. However, some providers do allow you to remove funds early, in exchange for a financial penalty.

If you are not earning money on your savings then their real world value is likely to be decreasing due to the impact of inflation. Putting your cash into one or more fixed rate bonds can prevent this and should result in the buying power of your savings increasing by the time your bond matures
