Deposit Interest Rate

The interest rate paid by financial institutions to deposit account holders. Deposit accounts include certificates of deposit, savings accounts and self-directed deposit retirement accounts.

Deposit accounts are attractive places to park cash for investors who want a safe vehicle for maintaining their principle, earning a small amount of fixed interest and taking advantage of insurance such as FDIC and NCUA insurance.
