    Hello, I'm looking for a good ISA account to put money in. I'm with Natwest at the moment, and they have an instant access account available, but I don't mind getting my money locked up for a year. The interest rate isn't as high as some of the other's I've seen, but I don't know how stable the others are and would be grateful if anyone can give me some advice or maybe tell me who they are with etc ))

    Thank you very much ))))

    I'm going to go with Scottish Widows when I get my money back from ICESAVE. They are owned by Lloyds TSB so will hopefully be OK. They currently pay 6.0% interest but 1.5% of that is only for 1 year as its a bonus.

    I was going to go with Natwest when they had an interest rate of 6.5% but that offer has finished now and its under 6% for the amount I will be putting in.

    I think the Royal Bank are doing an offer now, but it only applies to those transferring accounts from outwith their group.

    Thank you everyone )

    I've heard that Lloyds are very good to go with.

    I think I might open an e-savings account with Natwest for a year since interest rate is 6% and is easier to apply for. The 6% is only for first 12 months though, so will see what happens after that!!

    Thanks everyone ))

    I'm getting 6.5% until april too, but I would be amazed if you could get that anywhere today
    ihow much have you got to transfer? if the barclays tax haven is still going and you havent got much then go for that. nationwides isa bonds should be ok
    just make sure you do it before the end of the month or the rate will die
