Customers who open a new account and invest a minimum of £10,000 will be eligible to receive a fixed interest rate of 5.25 per cent AER with returns paid on a monthly, quarterly or an annual basis.

Mandy Webster, marketing manager at Scottish Widows Banks, explains the benefits the 5 Year Fixed Rate Deposit Account, she said: "The longer term nature of the 5 Year Fixed Rate Deposit Account ensures customers benefit from security and a good return on their investment.

"We are delighted to be bringing a strong 5 year fixed rate savings account to the consumer market."

New and existing customers can invest one lump sum up to £5million with the account start date set for September 23.
