We share the simplest interest rates on Isas, bonds, and easy-access savings accounts.

The Bank of England left the bottom rate unchanged last week at 0.75%.

But that has not stopped big banks including NatWest, RBS, Halifax, Lloyds and Virgin Money announcing cuts to their rates.

They will pay as little as 0.1% to loyal savers on easy-access accounts. In contrast, you'll earn the maximum amount as 1.35% by switching your savings to the Marcus account by Goldman Sachs.
