Isle of Man savings bank releases fixed rate bonds

BBISavings specialist Bradford & Bingley International, based in the Isle of Man, has launched two new fixed rate savings bonds.

For long term deposits, Fixed Rate Bond Issue 46 is a 1 year bond which pays 6.70% interest on maturity or 6.50% (6.70% AER) monthly.

For short term deposits, Fixed Rate Bond Issue 47 offers an interest rate of 6.00% fixed for 3 months, with interest paid on maturity. Both bonds are available for balances over £5,000.

Bradford & Bingley International is now part of Abbey and the Santander Group, which has an AA/Stable rating from Standard & Poor. Deposits with the offshore savings bank carry the full and unconditional guarantee of Abbey.

Managing Director John Pearson said, “With the recent reduction in Bank of England Base Rate to 4.50% these bonds represent a great opportunity for savers in what are difficult times. The added security offered by Abbey’s take-over of Bradford & Bingley International will give savers that all important peace of mind as to the safety of their deposit.”
