RCI Bank, the UK's newest savings bank, continues to shake up the savings market with the launch of their Fixed Term account range, which includes the market leading 2 year Fixed Term account, paying 2.35% AER gross fixed.
The launch of RCI Bank's Fixed Term accounts follow one week after they increased the interest rate on its easy access Freedom Savings Account to 1.65% AER gross variable for new and existing customers, taking it back to the top of the table. The new market leading 2 year Fixed Rate account is coupled with the launch of a new 1 year Fixed Rate account paying 2.06% respectively.
With market leading rates and an easy online application process, RCI Bank believes its new Fixed Term accounts will appeal to UK savers. The new Fixed Term savings accounts are available to all customers, new and existing.
RCI Bank, which was launched by RCI Banque, Renault's global banking group, last month plans to launch more products over the next 12 months.
