Typically certificates of deposit (or CDs) have lower interest rates than investments such as stocks or bonds. This low return is because CDs offer little if any risk compared to bonds. Because of this, many find CDs a secure, sound way to save their money.
Just because certificates of deposit have relatively low yields doesn’t mean you have to settle for the lowest rate. By shopping around, it is possible to obtain a higher yield on your deposit.
One of the great things about a certificate of deposit is the length of the term is predetermined by you. Once you have selected the term that fits your savings goals, there is no worry about fluctuating rates or losing money.
When CDs are left untouched for the entire duration of their term, they typically produce yields higher than regular savings or money market accounts.
Once you have decided upon a term between three and 60 months, you are ready to open a CD from Synchrony Bank.
