Investors with a minimum deposit of £2,000 can choose to receive a guaranteed return over a one, two or three year term. All offer a monthly income option. The gross rates paid on maturity or monthly are: On Maturity Monthly One year 4.31% 4.21% Two Year 4.43% 4.34% Three year 4.62% 4.50% The Co-operative Bank's Chief Operating Officer, Sheila Macdonald, said:" At a time of interest rate uncertainty for investors, competitively priced fixed rate deposits are very attractive to investors. They also offer a medium term alternative to the stock market, which continues to offer unpredictable returns.
