    Hi,

    So, I'm looking to switch current accounts by the end of the month (or upgrade mine, if possible). I currently have about £7500 to put in the account off-hand, then probably similar amount for the following months. The problem is, all the good accounts I've come across so far require you to be at least 18 (I'm 17), and the ones I can get typically cap interest and only let you save upto, say 3 or 4 thousand.

    Anyone know of any high-interest current accounts I could get at my age? Thanks.

    Do you mind having a withdrawal limit?
