Certificate of Deposit (CD)

For those looking to grow their savings, consider a Bankers Trust Certificate of Deposit (CD). A CD is an FDIC-insured 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 predetermined rate, which tends to be higher than most savings accounts.
