Savings Guru Verdict

Cambridge & Counties typically offers very competitive notice and fixed rate bonds to its business and non-personal customers.  They do change their product range regularly and don’t always have all accounts on sale for new customers.

The Bank has grown steadily since its launch in 2012 and we expect it to go through the £1bn of savings mark in 2021.
