LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 13, 2013) - Following the launch of several successful one year bonds during 2012, cahoot is launching a new two-year fixed rate bond paying 2.40 per cent AER. The bond is available from 12 February to 12 March 2013 (subject to availability), and customers can apply online at www.cahoot.com.

On maturity, the bond converts into a new cahoot savings account with on-line access and a tiered variable rate, dependant upon the balance in the account.

Matt Hall, Head of cahoot, said: "Term products are currently very popular as savers look for a fixed return in an unpredictable market, so cahoot has launched a two year bond, paying a guaranteed fixed rate of 2.40%. This bond will be a limited offer, so customers will need to buy early to avoid missing out."
