CDs are an investment option where money is put into an account that is not used for a period of time. This allows you to earn interest at a pre-determined rate, which tends to be higher than most checking accounts. Bankers Trust CDs include:
- Interest compounded annually
- Automatic renewal option
- FDIC insured
Limited terms available with opening online. Full terms available when opening at a branch.
Benefits of Opening a CD
With a Bankers Trust CD, you can receive the flexible terms you’re seeking, such as:
- Earn a competitive interest rate, with interest compounded annually. Interest can be paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually by deposit to any account.
- A CD is automatically renewable or you have the option to change the investment term upon maturity by calling the Bank.
- A minimum balance of $1,000 is required to open your account – a lower minimum of $500 is available for savers under 18!
- With the Bankers Trust Wellness Option and a Bankers Trust checking account, early withdrawal penalties will be waived for a medical emergency.*
Why Open a CD?
Whether you are saving toward a certain goal – such as travel fund, home repairs or college tuition – or you simply want to earn a better rate on the money you already have put away, consider a certificate of deposit. CDs can be a great saving option, no matter your age or place in life. With interest rates higher than a typical saving account, CDs provide a low-risk option to help your money grow over time. These accounts are low-risk compared because they are insured up to $250,000 by the Federal Insurance Deposits Commission (FDIC).
No matter which Bankers Trust branch you stop by to open your CD, our friendly staff can explain more about the benefits of opening a CD and help you determine the right account for your unique situation.
