Is a Yorkshire Building Society fixed rate bond right for you?

To get the most out of your savings, you need to look at different options for how to invest your money. Current accounts generally offer the highest rates of interest for smaller sums of money. For example, RCI Bank and Post Office are offering 1.30% on their savings accounts. However, savings accounts usually have relatively low thresholds above that they pay nothing or they have a limit to the amount you can deposit. 

In exchange for locking your money away for a set amount of time, fixed rate bonds will pay you a guaranteed interest rate for the life of the bond. They usually allow you to earn interest on much larger deposits than a current account will.

The most common types of fixed rate bonds tend to run for 1 year, 2 years, 3 years or 5 years. As a general rule, the longer the bond is for, the higher the interest rate you will receive. You may have the option to withdraw money from the bond early, but this will usually incur a penalty, such as having to sacrifice some of your interest payments.

Fixed rate bonds help your savings retain their value relative to inflation and will usually result in their real world value increasing over the term of the bond. They can be set up alongside your existing current account, so do not need to interfere with your day-to-day banking.

Compare Yorkshire Building Society fixed rate bonds

Yorkshire Building Society offer several ways to invest your savings with them. One alternative to fixed rate bonds that they provide is fixed rate ISAs. Like a fixed rate bond, these give you a guaranteed interest rate for the term of the bond.

Unlike with a fixed rate bond, however, an ISA allows you to earn interest without paying tax on it, as long as you stay within a yearly allowance set by the government. For 2017/18 this is £20,000. Taking out an ISA can therefore be a good choice if you want to earn interest while limiting your taxable income.
