What are CDs? 

Certificates of Deposit are a kind of savings account that feature a set term length. In exchange for keeping your money in your account for a pre-determined period, CDs reward customers with higher interest rates and guaranteed returns. 

A low-risk investment, when you open a CD you’ll choose a term length and associated interest rate that meets your needs and your goals. Your investment will grow for the duration of the term untouched. When it reaches maturity at the end of the term, you can roll it into a new CD or cash out your investment.
