    HSBC announce five-fold increase in savings interest 6th Dec 17 at 1:29 PM
    That's right ladies and gentlemen, the HSBC Flexible Saver has a new rate, effective today. It's gone up to 0.05%, from 0.01%, so you'll get five times more interest than you used to get

    Be careful though: if you have £2 million or more in the account, this will push your interest over the annual PSA threshold.

    Easy to get caught up in the euphoria, my advice is to go on a cruise and consider one’s options.

    Once round the harbour should do it.
