BBI: Interest rates increased on Internet savings accounts

bbi-reduced.jpgExpatriate savers will be amongst those to benefit from Bradford & Bingley International’s (BBI’s) latest interest rate increase on their eSaver and eIncome internet savings accounts.

These increases come despite a 0.25% decrease by the Bank of England to UK Base Rate on 7th February 2008.

BBI’s eSavings range is available exclusively online and provides British expatriates with competitive offshore interest rates and the convenience of managing their savings from the comfort of their home.

eSaver is a no notice savings account now paying 6.40% which includes a 0.50% premium where no more than 3 withdrawals are made between 1st April and 31st March. eIncome is a monthly interest, no notice savings account that now pays up to 6.00% p.a. (AER 6.17%).

Bradford & Bingley International’s Acting Managing Director, Lynette Byrne added “The rate increase is great news for existing eSaver and eIncome customers. It is important to us that we continue to provide competitive and convenient savings products. We are delighted to provide a solution to meet the varying needs of our expatriate and international customer base and are sure that the increase in interest rate on these accounts will be well received.”
