Savings Guru Verdict

RCI Bank offer a range of savings products including an easy access account, notice and fixed rate bonds from 1 - 5 years in duration.  During 2022, they've appeared infrequently in our best buy tables. Their easy access account has one rate, which we like for its fairness, as new savers cannot get a better rate than existing ones.
