Why Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service®?

Its one-stop shopping. With help from Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service®, you can access:

How does Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service® work?

We are a member of a special network. When you place a large amount with us, we place your funds into CDs issued by other banks in the same network – under the FDIC insurable amount – so that both principal and interest are eligible for complete FDIC protection. As a result, you can receive coverage from many banks while working with just one.

These exchanges, which occur on a dollar-for-dollar basis, can bring the full amount of your original deposit back to our bank. As a result, we can make the full amount of your deposit available for community lending purposes.2

What else should I know?

Now, you no longer have to spend time managing multiple bank relationships, administering various interest rates, organizing interest disbursements from various sources, or manually consolidating monthly statements. This reduces your administrative burden, especially during tax and financial reporting seasons.

And with Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service®, you can eliminate the need to monitor changing collateral3 values – another time saving convenience.

Of course, your confidential account information remains protected.

Funds may be submitted for placement only after a depositor enters into the CDARS Deposit Placement Agreement with Grand Savings Bank. The agreement contains important information and conditions regarding the placement of funds by us.
