The bank has confirmed the interest rates attached to its savings accounts will continue to be the same.

Here is a full list of the savings products currently on offer from Ford Money:

  • One- year Fixed Regular Saver - 4.75 per cent AER fixed
  • Flexible Saver - 4.60 per cent AER variable
  • 1-year Fixed Saver - five per cent AER fixed
  • 2-year Fixed Saver - 4.75 per cent AER fixed.

Savers in the UK have benefited greatly from the Bank of England's decision to raise, and eventually hold, the UK's base rate at 5.25 per cent.

The central bank has opted to do this in its ongoing fight to bring the consumer price index (CPI) rate of inflation to two per cent.

Earlier this week, figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed that inflation for the 12 months to May reached the Bank's desired target.

Despite this, the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) voted to keep interest rates at their current level with the base rate having been the same since August 203.

Analysts are betting on the Bank of England cutting rates in the later half of the year.

As such, experts are urging Britons to take advantage of competitive interest rates on savings accounts while they still can.

Andy Mielczarek, the CEO of Chetwood Financial, warned: “Ultimately, it won’t be long before the Bank of England makes the call to cut interest rates, and when they do, many flexible savings offers will have their rates slashed.

"Now is the time to consider investing in longer-term, fixed-rate deals that lock in high interest while at their peak.”

Victor Trokoudes, founder and CEO at smart money app Plum, added "Thanks to high interest rates, it has become a lot easier to mitigate the effect of inflation on savings, with many easy access saving accounts and Cash ISAs delivering returns well in excess of two per cent.

"It’s important to shop around and make sure you are getting the best deal possible to make the most of your savings while rates are high."
