In September 2015, Radius raised the High Yield Savings rate to 1.10% APY, and in doing so, became the rate leader for savings accounts. That didn’t last long. The rate fell back to 1.00% APY in 2016 where it has remained until last week. This latest rate increase didn’t bring the High Yield Savings rate close to the new rate leaders which now have rates as high as 1.40% APY.
