Index-Linked Certificate Of Deposit

A certificate of deposit (CD) with a return based on a specific index. These CDs are purchased for a fixed price. There is a chance for a high return, depending on the outcome of the index, and there is no risk of a loss as the CD is FDIC insured.

While these CDs offer a potentially higher return than many other variations, they are not the safest investment. Even though the initial investment will never be lost, there may be no return on the index. If you are looking for guaranteed future income, a traditional CD may be a better choice for you.
