Launch of 5 Year Fixed Rate Bond at 3% with 25% penalty free access

Leeds Building Society has unveiled a 5-Year Fixed Rate Bond at 3.00% gross p.a./ AER, which allows penalty free access of up to 25%. This account has a minimum investment of only £100 and a maximum investment of £1,000,000 (£2,000,000 for joint accounts).

Kim Rebecchi, Leeds Building Society Sales & Marketing Director commented, “We know that savers are looking for value and security, and this competitive product at 3% offers the peace of mind of penalty free access to 25% of the funds without notice or penalty. This is in contrast to many other products in the market.

“We expect the combination of a competitive return and penalty free access to be popular, and I would urge savers to act quickly as there is a limited tranche available.”

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