At Continuum, we are always keen on finding ways to make our clients’ money work harder. In the current climate, with low interest rates now the new normal, it is more important than ever to get our help to get the best return on your money.
What about a savings account?
Savings accounts from banks and building societies used to be rewarding solutions for small savers. You paid in when you had spare cash, drew it out when you needed to cover an expense, and watched the interest your cash earned mount up.
The trouble is that with current low rates, your interest will hardly seem to mount up at all, and the interest it does make could well be swallowed up by inflation.
What about savings bonds?
For a higher rate, you might consider a savings bond. These are term saving plans offering a fixed rate of interest over a set term, which can be anything from between six months and five years. They keep your cash safe from temptation because you cannot touch it until the term is up.
The longer you lock away your money, the better the interest rate you should get. But there is another snag. Most savings bonds require a one-off lump sum to open.
What can you do about getting a better deal?
