ISA round up - 10th June

There were new best buys on 2, 3 and 5 Year ISAs as Principality Building Society, Secure Trust Bank and Shawbrook all jostled for top spot. While best buy easy access ISA rates remain in tact, Paragon Bank's relaunch of its Double Access ISA was the only significant move and it is likely that rates will fall back with the expectation that Base Rate will be cut to 5% on August 1st. We expect a similar week ahead with a few minor movements as providers compete for position. If you are undecided whether to use your ISA allowance in cash or stocks and shares ISAs this tax year, there's a handy guide on Hargreaves Lansdown's website to inform your thinking.

Here's our round up of the best buys and key changes in Individual Savings Accounts:
