CD laddering is an investment strategy that takes advantage of the higher interest rates that CDs offer while still offering a bit of liquidity for your investment. To do it, you divide the amount of money you want to have in CDs, and invest smaller amounts into different CDs with varied maturity dates. You might put money into a one-year, two-year and three-year policy, and when the first CD expires, if you don't have an urgent need for it, you can put that money into another three-year CD. This way, eventually you'll have a rotating portfolio of the highest interest rates, while still having the option to take out your money every year.
Your rate will be locked in from the day you put your money in, so you never have to wonder how much you're earning. Plus, our CDs are FDIC insured up to $250,000. This makes CDs a safe investment strategy.
CDs can be opened in person at your nearest banking center. Schedule an appointment to skip the line and save time. You can also open a CD over the phone by calling ExpressBank at (800) 888-4579.
