    Trying to work out which bank is best for me personally to join but it's hard as each bank are biased towards why I should join them. Some info:

    I'm a graduate (23 y/o)
    I'll always have more than about £2500 in my account
    Currently have about £4500 in my account

    Not really sure what other info to give. Please help me work out which is best for me.

    Get a monthly fee current account that gives you interest assuming you earn over 1k-2k a month you ll have plenty of choice then you can drip feed that into a regular savings account.

    Don't listen to these people, take 90% of the money and put it in a S&P 500 tracker fund, I suggest vanguard's.

    Keep 10% in cash in whatever account pays the highest interest.

    Listen to this advice OP.

    You don't want to keep too much liquid cash lying around. I recommend Vanguard LifeStrategy 80%.
