Offshore Bank Launches New Tracker Savings Account

Bradford & Bingley International (BBI) has released a new no-notice base rate tracker account paying up to 6.40%.

Douglas, United Kingdom, October 27, 2007 --( Offshore savings specialists Bradford & Bingley International have launched a new tracker savings account - the Future Planning Tracker.

The new savings account offers an attractive interest rate of 6.40% for balances of GBP 25,000 and above and will primarily appeal to savers worried about possible reductions in the UK base rate but who are still looking for a high interest long term savings product.

The base rate tracker account can be opened with a minimum balance of GBP 5,000, but savers with over GBP 25,000 are guaranteed a rate of 0.65% over the base rate in the first year, which works out to 6.40% at current the level. The account also guarantees that interest rates will not go below the UK base rate in the first 2 years, as long as the minimum balance remains in the account.

The Future Planning Tracker account is a no notice savings account with four penalty free withdrawals allowed in each financial year. Withdrawals over this number are subject to a 30-day interest penalty on the funds withdrawn.

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.
