The average annual equivalent rate (AER) for all easy-access savings accounts on the market is currently 0.58%.
This figure is in itself embarrassingly low compared to the top rate on the market of 1.5% offered by Cynergy Bank, Marcus and Virgin Money.
Now, new analysis has named and shamed the big banks that provide the worst rates across the board.
Barclays offers an average rate 0.3% below the average. HSBC is little better offering 0.29% below, and Lloyds and RBS both offer 0.19% under the average.
