Pensions, savings and investments

Why savers may not be as badly off as they think.

Savings accounts were delivering record low returns in January, new figures have revealed.

Banks and building societies are boosting the bonuses they offer people opening new savings accounts in an effort to recruit extra customers.

Savers should be offered tax incentives as way of combating the poor returns currently being delivered by savings accounts, a leading banker has argued.

Savers have been confronted with more bad news on the release of figures from the Bank of England showing that savings accounts are paying out the lowest interest rates since 1995.
