NatWest Raises Interest Rates on Its Savings Bonds
(10 May 2006)

NatWest has increased the interest rates across its suite of Savings Bonds by 0.3%. This follows hot on the heels of its new 5% tier on its Mini Cash ISA.

The improved rates offer a very competitive option for those seeking to fix the interest on their savings and are available to customers who apply for a bond from 8 May. The bonds have a minimum investment of 500 (Community Bond), 1000 (Children’s Bond), and 5,000 (Fixed Rate Bonds), and the Fixed Rate Bonds offer the choice of receiving interest monthly, annually or at maturity. The Savings Bonds must be kept for the full term with no withdrawals made. The rates have been increased as follows:
