Certificate of Deposit (CD)
A certificate of deposit (CD) is a savings vehicle with a maturity date and specified interest rate that are both fixed. They can be issued in any denomination aside from minimum investment requirements. A CD restricts access to the funds until the maturity date of the investment. CDs are generally issued by commercial banks and are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) up to $250,000 per individual.
