In August the BofE raised interest rates to 0.75%...the highest level since 2009. My saving rate with the Coventry was increased by 0.15% to 1.4% which is still not great and below the current rate of inflation. Had I relied solely on savings interest for the past decade my standard of living would have been severely compromised and I doubt if I could have afforded to retire early.
