Top Reasons Why You Should Consider Getting a Certificate March 14, 2023

If you're looking for a safe and secure way to invest your money a Certificate of Deposit or a Share Certificate, is a great option. A certificate is a type of savings account that offers a higher interest rate than a traditional savings account in exchange for locking up your funds for a fixed period.

Here are the top reasons why you should consider getting a share certificate:

Guaranteed returns

Unlike stocks or other investments, a certificate offers a guaranteed return on your investment. The interest rate on a Certificate is fixed for the term of the deposit, so you know exactly how much you'll earn before you invest.

Low risk

Certificates are considered low-risk investments because they are insured. For Banks, it is by the FDIC, and for Credit Union, the NCUA. This means that if the bank or credit union fails, your money is protected. Additionally, because Certificates are not subject to market fluctuations, your investment is not affected by economic downturns or other financial crisis.

Flexible terms

Certificates come in a variety of terms, ranging from a few months to several years. You can choose the term that works best for your financial goals and timeline. Typically, the longer the term of the Certificate, the higher the interest rate you'll receive.

Regular interest payments

Some Certificates offer regular interest payments, such as monthly or quarterly, which can provide a steady stream of income. This can be especially helpful for retirees or those on a fixed income.

Encourage savings

Because your funds are locked up in a Certificate, you're less likely to withdraw the money before the term is up. This can help you stay disciplined with your savings and reach your financial goals faster.

A Certificate is a great way to earn a guaranteed return on your investment while minimizing risk. Nymeo is currently offering two great Share Certificate offers. With flexible terms, regular interest payments, and federally insured, a certificate is a safe and secure way to build up savings. If you're looking for a low-risk investment option, especially now, a certificate may be right for you.
