The new bond which matures 30 June 2017, offers an interest rate of 1.40% AER and is open to new and existing customers.
Managing Director Jim Coupe said, “As of today, on Moneyfacts, this product is market leading for 1-year deposits so we expect it to prove very popular. Skipton’s fixed rate bonds offer our savings customers the certainty and stability of a fixed rate, along with a good return.
“As our recent Moneyfacts Award for Best Offshore Account Provider indicates, we are committed to giving customers from the Channel Islands, and all around the world, the best personal service and to make the process of opening offshore savings accounts as straightforward as possible.”
Skipton International offers a range of offshore savings accounts including Notice, Easy Access, and Fixed Rate accounts, to Channel Island residents and British expats in over 100 countries around the world.
