Certificate of Deposits

August 26th, 2017 by Kara in

Also known as CDs, Certificates of Deposit are savings instruments issued by banks.  The investor receives interest payments for a period of time (generally one month to five years).  CDs are considered as safe investments because they do not decline in principal value.  In addition, CDs are insured by the FDIC.
