Question by Anon

Could you be kind enough to let me know what would be the best instant access savings account for me? I would like any interest to be paid to me monthly. Thank you

The rates on savings accounts are not brilliant, but I’m guessing you know that already. It is always worth shopping around as they change frequently. The top rates at the moment can be found at www.savingschampion.co.uk/best-buys/personal/monthly-income/#table

The best deals are currently offered by Atom Bank, but you have to tie your money up, which you don’t want to do. As such, the best deal available today is the Post Office, offering a rate of 1.29%. Check out the small print of these deals as some have restrictions or are only branch-based etc.
