Kent Reliance has raised the rate on its easy-access account to a top 1.5%.
It now matches the rate offered by Goldman Sachs’s Marcus account, which has topped best buy tables since its launch a couple of months ago.
Annoyingly you have to apply for the new rate 'Easy Access' (was 1.26% now 1.5%) account even if you already have an account with them! The only logical reason they don't, is presumably they hope existing savers will miss the update or not bother. In my experience the only bank I know who have applied any increased rate automatically is RCI Bank, sadly they're lagging behind now at 1.37% (Freedom Savings Account).
