Alliance & Leicester launches new offshore account

07 March 2005
Alliance & Leicester's international arm has launched the Offshore 60 Plus Account, the latest addition to its comprehensive offshore account portfolio.

The Offshore 60 Plus requires 60 days' notice for withdrawals, and a minimum balance of £10,000.

The account offers a choice of monthly or annual variable interest rates, dependent on the account balance.

For balances of between £10,000 and £49,000, account holders can chose between an annual interest rate of 4.85 per cent, and a monthly rate of 4.70 per cent.

Balances between £50,000 and £99,000 have the option of a monthly 4.80 per cent or an annual 4.95 per cent.

Account holders with £100,000 or more get the choice of an annual 5.05 per cent or monthly 4.90 per cent.

All rates are variable and include a special introductory premium of 0.30% guaranteed until 1st June 2005.

"The introduction of the Offshore 60 Plus Account enhances our range of savings offers, enabling us to satisfy the requirements of all deposit-based investors," said Simon Hull, managing director of Alliance & Leicester International.

Withdrawals can be made without 60 days' notice, but account holders forfeit the interest those 60 days would have accrued.
