Smile: 5.25 % my favorite bank – just this time lacking in rates
HSBC: 5.3 % generally good
Halifax: 5.55 % had a nasty experience with them*
Halifax guaranteed interest (might be worth checking out at these high rates) 6.2% for 1 year
*The downside with Halifax? Because Halifax works slow and unorganized I missed the ISA deadline 2006. 1 month was not enough for Halifax to close 1 account and open an ISA and allocate payment – really nasty – This is a warning 😉
Then I thought I would check Money Supermarket for their highest rate: 5,85 %
Knowing that Moneysupermarket does NOT offer the best rates as they take sponsorship for referrals I though I would extend my search.
The best of all? National Savings and Investments is backed by HM Treasury which makes it a AAA investment
The downside? You can not transfer your old ISA’s to NSI.
Article correct July 30th 2007 – Rates may vary.
