- Investors are paid with a sum of money as reimbursement during the contract period as they cannot withdraw money over this period. The longer the time period, the higher the denomination, the higher the rate of interest will be.
- It is considered to be one of the reasonable options for savings as the investor is bound to receive significant amount as returns. Investors can prefer CD’S over savings account in a bank.
- The most important aspect of jumbo CD’s is the guaranteed return on investment, though there is a bankrupt or market fluctuates, the investor is assured with the principal amount at the time of maturity.
- For investors having high net-worth, Jumbo CD’s are offering an option to segregate the investment into parts and deposit in two banks. The amount which is not needed for next 5 years should be only deposited to avoid penalty.
- Some banks offer a week or two as the contract period to make quick earnings. They are also called negotiable CD’s because you can sell off the CD to someone else; this option is not available for a normal CD.
- They are used as collateral without the interference of the bank.

- Consult with your financial adviser before you invest and ask how much can be invested as well. Learn which bank offers a nominal rate of interest and then invest.
- The investor complains about the issues faced while using a jumbo CD. If the time period of the deposit is longer as well as the denomination, then high rate of interest have to be paid. It cannot be used for retirement savings.
They are not suitable in an environment where there constant inflation. To earn significant amount in return, you need to sign up a contract period for a pretty long time.
High penalty fee is charged if the investors wish to withdraw the money before the maturity. When you withdraw too early, along with the interest, a portion of the principal amount is deducted.
The amount of interest you incur at the time of maturity is taxable, so investors who like to pay only less tax will not choose this as an investment option. Not every investor can make such a huge capital investment.
