2010: Conflict of Interest – Manning
As usual, for the sake of the hard of thinking, I need to state that this is not advice, but a list of some of the better rates available “out there”. You should always check the detail and I recommend doing so via the Moneyfacts website as your starting point. Remember the rules about consumer protection – only the first £85,000 is covered by the compensation scheme (FSCS) and be warned that there are a number of Banks that come under the same Banking license. I would be unwise to speculate about which Banks may have liquidity problems, but a glance at the media would suggest you are more circumspect of those that from within Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain, which may provide you with a conflict of interest.
