Leeds Building Society has increased the interest on its easy access savings and ISA products to offer customers more “competitive” rates.
The mutual’s Limited Issue Online Access ISA will now pay savers an AER of five percent, up from 4.85 percent, while its Limited Issue Online Access Account now offers an AER of 4.95 percent, up from 4.8 percent.
The changes became effective on November 16, 2023. Savings rates for the society’s two-year and three-year fixed rate ISA, bonds, and monthly income bonds, have also been updated.
Matt Bartle, director of products at Leeds Building Society, commented: “We keep our savings range under constant review and have decided to improve rates on a selection of our online products and to reissue our popular two-year and three-year fixed rate savings products.
“Many will be thinking about spending rather than saving as we approach December, yet savers can still take a proactive approach to managing their finances to ensure their cash is working as hard as it can for them.

“These new savings rates are competitive and will be attractive to those who want to reinvest their savings after recently moving off a fixed-term product, and to those who value the certainty fixed rate products can provide”.
