So, why do NS&I products have a different form of protection to other savings accounts?
Martin explained: “All of those, because they’re with NS&I, which is government state-owned, effectively you’re saving with the government.

“Which means, some of these let you put up to £2million in it. So for those who have got big money and want to keep it somewhere safe, you’re getting the best paying and total safety.”
