Cash ISA if you haven't already used up your allowance. Only about 3.5% but that is tax free. Nothing else to beat that at this time, not for a fixed amount.

What about paying some of your mortgage off (if you have one).

I work in a top building society, and to be honest you are best off with either an Isa (if you havnt used out 2008-2009 tax allowance) or a 1 year fixed rate bond as rates are bound to go up in the near future.
If you dont have an isa it would be best to put it in a high interest access account for a couple of months beacuse the good fixed rate Isa's will be unleashed in mid march!
Hope this helps!

RBS shares plunge on record loss

Uh oh! :?

RBS have a cash ISA plus account for 3.51% variable
And birmingham midshires have a 1 year fixed rate bond at 3.5% - online

Under your mattress.

Safest place for it - my dad just stopped paying into an ISA the other day - he told me.

Put 6 years into it and is £1600 down on what he put in overall. That's just one example.

Don't let the *******s fritter your money away.

rolls royce shares are a good bet ---- order books are the fullest in the comapanys history -- engines have just been put back ( delayed ) --- once out of the crunch , the shares are going to 'fly' !!!!!

A cash isa will not lose your money.

If a £1000 is a lot to you you put it into a cash isa (if you have not filled your 3600 quota) .
If it's not take a gamble on a riskier investment.

Definately looking into an ISA, so how much return should I get in 1 year @ 3.51%? ( my maths is weak):oops: oh and thanks for all the helpful advice! repped! :thumbsup:
#17
Its a £35 return, def best bet and safest
#18
premium bonds - one win is £50 upwards so you'd beat the isa's straight away

plus checking to see if you've won is something to look forward to at the start of each month

Currently own a premium bond - bought it in 1998 - not won anything yet :x .. its all chance, similar to the lottery i guess...:roll:

Only much much lower chance of winning than the lottery.

As below, he's invested in a Stocks and Shares ISA which can go up and down. Unless the company has gone bust he hasn't lost any money.

statistically you may or may not be right

all i know is i have never won more than 1 x £10 in the whole life of the lottery, yet my premuim bonds have netted me over £1000 in winnings over the last three years.

gotta be worth a chance when the very best isa is going to give you about £35

can i interest you in a £1000 of the finest morrocan black :)

Premium bonds are seriously the worst investment, i have customers who have the full amount in them which is £30k, and their winnings equate to 3% gross a year, take the tax off and your money has depreciated cos you havnt kept up with inflation.

winnings are tax free!

Totally forgot it was winnings cos i was going on about interest :p

They have to put them into an account though so they clear, and then they get taxed on the interest that earns.
