Is a TSB fixed rate bond right for you?
The best rates of interest for your savings will generally be found with a savings account. For example, RCI Bank and Post Office are offering 1.30% on their savings accounts. However, usually savings accounts will have a low ceiling above which interest will not be paid or they will have a limit for the amount you can deposit .
If this happens, you are likely to be better off if you transfer the balance not earning interest into a fixed term bond. This type of account provides a guaranteed rate of return on your savings in exchange for locking them away for a set period. You can usually place much larger interest earning amounts into a fixed rate bond than you can with a current account.
Popular types of fixed rate bond run for 1 year, 2 years, 3 years or 5 years and the longer the deposit term, the higher the interest rate you will generally be offered. Normally you cannot take any money out of your bond, or add any more in, until it reaches maturity. However, some providers offer exceptions to this rule if you pay a penalty fee.
Fixed rate bonds can be a great way to quickly and simply start earning a better return on your savings. They can be set up in parallel to your existing current account so should not interfere with your day-to-day banking.
