    Equity from home sale 17th Oct 16 at 5:00 PM
    I have recently sold my house and have bought a place with my partner. I am left with 10k that I would like to save for a while.

    Does anyone have any suggestions that are fairly low risk. I do not anticipate needing the cash for at least a year.

    Look at the Top current accounts that pay you interest section.

    You and your partner could each open a Nationwide Flexdirect account and you could both open a joint account.

    2500 in each gives you 5% for a year - you could then open a couple of Tesco current accounts - 1250 in each and move in the monthly interest arising on the Nationwide accounts.

    You can move out (and back again) the required 1000 a month funding for the Flexdirects.
