International savings specialist Bradford & Bingley International has launched a limited issue fixed interest rate bond for financial institutions.
The new offshore fixed rate bond will appeal to corporate investors, trustees, Independent Financial Advisors and Life Companies in the UK, Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
Prestige Fixed Rate Bond (Issue 18) provides corporate investors the opportunity to offer their customers the benefits of placing deposits offshore at a rate over 1% above the current UK Base Rate with interest paid gross.
The bond pays 6.30% p.a. for balances of £10,000 and above with a maturity date of 8th April 2009 taking investors into a new tax year. An additional attractive feature of the product is the availability of emergency withdrawals.
While the bond is not designed to permit withdrawals, there is, nonetheless, the facility to withdraw some or all of the balance subject to the loss of 90 days interest on the amount withdrawn, should an emergency arise.
Bradford & Bingley International is a leading offshore savings bank based on the AAA rated Isle of Man. BBI have been offering tailored savings solutions to financial institutions for over 16 years.
