The CDARS Advantage

CDARS® is one of the safest, not to mention smartest, options for investors looking to protect their investments while earning CD-level returns.

CDs placed through CDARS offer investors, including corporations, foundations, endowments, CPAs, lawyers, financial planners, and individuals:

  • access to multi-million-dollar FDIC insurance;
  • the power of daily compounding;
  • a finite maturity date (in contrast to auction rate or some adjustable rate securities); and
  • the ease of working through one trusted relationship, earning one rate per maturity, and receiving consolidated statements.

Alternative to U.S. Treasuries

Investing through CDARS can be a strong alternative to U.S. Treasuries. Like Treasuries, FDIC insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government.
