Savings Guru Verdict

United Trust offers very competitive savings rates and they typically withdraw them, rather than offer lower priced versions, once they have attracted enough new money. In 2019, the overall interest rate it paid customers actually increased, in a falling market. 

Although United Trust have an online application, savings can only be managed by post or telephone once opened, which may be frustrating for some savers.
