Bonds, CDs, and other fixed-income investments
Fixed-income investments pay interest in fixed amounts, at specified times.
Find out how Federal Reserve policy is shaping the playing field in fixed-income markets in our most recent Quarterly Market Outlook.
Fixed-income investments play a role in almost any diversified portfolio mix because they pay a fixed amount according to a set schedule. We offer a range of fixed-income investment products including municipal bonds, corporate bonds, treasury bonds and agency bonds, along with certificates of deposit.
These bonds offer tax-exempt income and high credit quality, making them an option for income-oriented investors looking to reduce federal and, possibly, state income tax bills.
We have the rates you want, with the names you know. A corporate bond usually has a fixed interest rate, so you'll receive set payments typically twice a year. Use these payments for portfolio protection or as an income stream.
Certificates of deposit
Certificates of deposit (CDs) can be a good choice when you want steady, predictable income with protection for your principal. They can also be used to be build a "ladder" strategy similar to bonds. We offer competitive interest rates on a wide selection of CDs with varying maturity dates and interest payment options.
Did you know that when you buy a U.S. Treasury bond, you are basically extending the U.S. government a loan? Familiarize yourself with the three main types of U.S. government treasuries: bills, notes and bonds.
An agency bond is like making a loan to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or the Tennessee Valley Authority, although not all of these bonds are backed by the U.S. government. They typically offer relatively high liquidity, some tax advantages, and the potential to earn a higher yield than U.S. Treasuries offer.
