Abbey Super Cash ISA 10%- Too Good to be True? / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAbbey have launched what on face value looks like an unbeatable market breaking Cash ISA savings account paying a remarkable 10% for up to 13 months on lump sum investments of up to£3,600 (from 6th April), but and there is a big BUT, savers also have to invest a lump sum into their Guaranteed Equity Bond GEB, which usually tend to prove to be very bad investments, therefore this article attempts to present an objective look at the Abbey product to determine whether or not it stacks up against other Cash ISA's such as the Barclays 12 month Tax Haven Cash ISA paying 6.5%. Both Cash ISA savings accounts are instant access.

Best Cash ISA Savings Accounts- Barclays Tax Haven ISA -March 2008 / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Shahla_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe end of the Tax year is little more than 3 weeks away giving enough time for savers to make sure that their cash ISA allowances are fully utilised. Savers can still enjoy remarkably good rates of interest despite two Bank of England interest rate cuts to 5.25%. This continues to be as a consequence of the credit crunch which means that cash starved banks are willing to pay savers that bit extra to get cash in through the doors. Though as the economy slows there will be further cuts in UK interest rates and therefore cash ISA savings rates will decline further from the heady levels approaching 7% seen in October 2007.

Devaluation of Your Savings - When Cash is Trash, Part II / Personal_Finance / Inflation

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen I wrote Part I of "When Cash is Trash" just three months ago — colleagues, investors, even friends and family told me I was nuts. "How can you go wrong with keeping most of your money safe in cash?" they asked.

"Safe?" I replied. "Give me a break!" Cash is like any other investment — its value goes up and down relative to other assets. Back then I said the current environment made cash just about the worst investment to hold on to. And, today, I still believe that.

Are Your Savings and Investments Safe From Bank Failures? / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Christopher_Laird

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTime to ask a few good questions about your Interest rates - I think its time to start asking some basic questions about what we all think we are doing financially. Is what we do appropriate for the times? Or, more to the point, do we view risk appropriately?

Do we live in a time where we might just see our personal banks, or financial institutions such as money market funds, MMFs, fail?

By: MoneyFacts

Samantha Owens, Head of Personal Finance at Moneyfacts.co.uk, comments on the 0% balance transfer deals and how this market has changed: “It was way back in 2004 when balance transfer fees first started to raise their ugly heads on 0% credit card deals.
