By: MoneyFacts

Julia Harris, Mortgage Expert at Moneyfacts.co.uk - the leading independent financial comparison site, comments:“The sub prime sector continues to see most of the action in the mortgage market, with still rising rates and tightening credit criteria.

UK Savings Reach Record High In August / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Submissions

Neil Johnson writes: Building society net receipts in August were nearly double those in July. This is the highest August figure ever and the highest monthly figure since April 2005. We believe that successive increases in interest rates and subdued equity markets have encouraged savers to put more money away, and we expect this to continue while rates remain high and savers recognise the wide range of good value building society savings products available to them.
