Following rate increases earlier this week, the 48-month CD (2.78% APY) and 60-month CD (3.03% APY) are once again players.

Availability

Headquartered in New Orleans, Crescent Bank offers its services and product line to the residents of Louisiana, with proof of residency (driver’s license, state ID card) required at time of application.

Crescent Bank now offers an online application for opening CDs. If you prefer a brick-and-mortar experience, there are three Louisiana branches located in New Orleans, Metairie, and Covington.

Funding a new CD can be done through an internal transfer from a Crescent Bank checking or savings account, through ACH, or by personal or cashier’s check.

Note: While the main office in New Orleans and the Metairie branch are full-service locations, the Covington location is a limited purpose branch dedicated to CD sales only. The Bank also has 33 loan production offices in 21 states across the country.

Crescent Bank is a fairly young bank, having been established in 1991 when a small investor group purchased the assets of New Orlean’s Columbia Homestead. The new City Bank & Trust opened with three employees. Within three years, the name was changed to Crescent Bank to avoid confusion with other similarly named "City" financial institutions, and incorporating one of New Orlean’s nicknames. Crescent Bank has grown to become Louisiana’s tenth largest bank, with assets in excess of $996 million.
