By: Nadeem_Walayat

So it's no wonder that many millions of Brit's have plowed a large chunk of their savings into government backed Premium Bonds. Here give them a good 1 year test run to see what prices (returns) they generate on a sizeable £32,500 investment.

One-year Savings Bond Rates Soar, While Five-year Deals Rise Modestly / Personal_Finance / Saving Bonds

By: MoneyFacts

Starting a new year can be a great time to review the top savings rates, and reassuringly, average rates on one-year fixed bonds have hit a four-year high, according to the latest research by Moneyfacts.co.uk. However, this encouraging start to 2019 has not been seen in the five-year fixed bond market, with rates (although rising) not rising at the same pace.

Statistics released today show the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) fell to 2.1% during December, meaning 94 fixed rate bonds and 6 fixed rate ISAs (based on a £10,000 deposit) can now match or beat inflation*. Within that, 82 fixed bonds and 4 fixed ISAs beat 2.1%, still a small share of the standard savings market.

UK Savings Market Recovery Weakened by Bank of England Lending Schemes / Personal_Finance / Saving Bonds

By: MoneyFacts

The latest data from moneyfacts.co.uk reveals that the savings market has now had seven consecutive months wherein rate rises have outweighed cuts, with July seeing 151 rises versus 45 cuts.

Fixed rate bonds are continuing to play a huge part in the recovery of the market, with 60% of the recorded rate rises last month being for fixed rate bonds. In fact, the average two-year fixed bond has grown from 1.04% to 1.32% since the start of the year, and a similar picture can be seen for longer-term bonds. The average three-year fixed bond has grown from 1.21% to 1.56%, while the average five-year fixed bond is up to 1.92% from 1.67% in January 2017.

Popular One-year Pensioner Bond is Coming to an End / Personal_Finance / Saving Bonds

By: MoneyFacts

January marks the one-year anniversary of the launch of the 65+ Guaranteed Growth Bonds (also known as the Pensioner Bonds), which means that those who invested in the one-year fixed version would be wise to start looking for a new home for their cash.

It’s estimated that over a million older savers snapped up the one and three-year bonds paying 2.80% and 4.00% respectively last year. According to calculations by Moneyfacts.co.uk, savers will have earned £280 in interest before tax if the maximum of £10,000 was invested over the one-year term.
