Inflation Linked Accounts

Over the past couple of years it has been hard for savers, especially those who pay tax on the interest the receive, to get a return which beats inflation. The problem has seen the rise of the Inflation Linked savings account where the interest you receive is linked to either CPI (Consumer Prices Index) or RPI (Retail Prices Index).

The most popular Inflation Linked accounts are the Index Linked Certificates offered by National Savings & Investments (NS&I), however these are currently only available to holders of existing Index Linked Certificates and not new savers.

Other Inflation Linked savings accounts are offered from time to time by banks and building societies, sometimes in the form of a Cash ISA (Individual Savings Accounts) so that the interest is tax free.

Inflation Linked savings accounts generally have a fixed term of between three and five years, and care should be taken that you can afford to tie up your savings for the duration of the account as penalties for early access, if this is allowed at all, are generally high.
