Bradford & Bingley International Launches Limited Edition Fixed Rate Savings Bond

Offshore savings specialists Bradford & Bingley International have released their latest annual fixed rate bond which pays 6.60% interest and has an emergency withdrawal facility.

Douglas, United Kingdom, September 18, 2007 --( Fixed Rate Bond (Issue 32) is a one year fixed rate bond from Isle of Man based savings bank Bradford & Bingley International (BBI). The limited edition bond is available immediately for deposits of GBP10, 000 or more and pays 6.60% per annum from the moment funds have cleared.

The high interest fixed rate bond matures on 30 September 2008 and is ideally suited to customers that are unlikely to require access to their savings over the 12 month period.

BBI bond holders have the additional convenience of an emergency withdrawal facility. Should anyone need access to their funds before the maturity date, they can do so subject to a 90 day interest penalty on the funds withdrawn. This provides the flexibility to react to any unforeseen changes in circumstances during the fixed rate period of the investment and is not generally available on this type of account

Bradford & Bingley International is a leading offshore savings bank based on the AAA rated Isle of Man. It offers a wide range of tax efficient savings accounts for international and expatriate customers as well as Isle of Man and Channel Island residents.

The bond is only available until the 28th September 2007 so applicants should hurry to avoid disappointment.
