Leeds Building Society launches new fixed rate ISA with 25% access!

Leeds Building Society’s new 1 year fixed rate ISA at 2.00% gross p.a./ AER provides the flexibility and peace of mind that comes with access to 25% of the funds, without notice or penalty, at any time.

Kim Rebecchi, Leeds Building Society’s Sales and Marketing Director said, “Our 1 year ISA at 2.00% is a competitive high street rate for a tax free account allowing 25% penalty free access to the funds.

“With just over six weeks to go until the end of the 2012/2013 tax year, this new account offers a good rate of return to those investors still to use their £5,640 tax free allowance.

“I anticipate our 1 year fixed rate ISA, with a minimum investment of just £1 and access to 25% of the funds without notice or penalty, will be popular. It is available to open by post, online and in branch.”

For more information, customers can call into their local branch, visit the website at, or call the savings hotline, on 08450 540 995.
