Negative Interest Rates are Becoming a Reality for Savers

Data from Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that the savings market is showing encouraging signs of improvement. The number of rate rises now outweighs the number of reductions for the third month running. In the month of March, Moneyfacts recorded 163 savings rate rises, with some rates increased by as much as 1.20%. This dwarfs the 65 rate reductions that took place in the same period. As a result, the average five-year fixed rate has now risen to levels not seen since August 2016, reaching 1.81%.
