I recently opened a CD at Safra. Could not have been easier. Added bonus.they dont hold your money while you wait for them to verify your account by making small deposits in your funding account at your external bank. Everything was done in 2 days! Fantastic!

Great personal touch from the Branch Manager. He made me feel comfortable and guided me with my banking needs during a process that other banks made difficult. I would highly recommend the bank and the team to anyone that's looking for great service.

Lost Money On A CD

Posted by: |

Leave them alone, unless you have a lot of money to invest. I had a small CD - just a little over $1,000. It was originally invested in T. Rowe Price, then T. Rowe Price started M.Y. Safra Bank. I trusted T. Rowe Price, so I left it with Safra. Turns out, Safra immediately began charging monthly "Retirement Plan Fees." Their monthly fee was greater than the small amount of interest I was accruing. By the time I was able to transfer the CD to another company, I had lost money on my CD. Why they needed to charge a Retirement Plan fee is out of sheer greed. Of course they're easy and helpful. Of course they will make it easy to open new accounts. After all, that's how they get your money. I was told that if you make a minimum deposit of $10,000, then they don't charge the monthly fee. Thank you, Safra, for looking out for the little guy.

BEWARE Of Early Withdrawal Penalty

Posted by: |

I wanted to open a CD account here, but when I reviewed their Truth in Savings disclosure document online, I was shocked at their Early Withdrawal Penalty clause. The penalty is credited interest or 90 days of interest, whichever is HIGHER...You can lose everything! I will not recommend this bank at all, even if they have great CD rates.

Poor Client Relations . Inconsistent Staff Explanations.

I have been trying to withdraw a CD from this bank for at least 5 weeks. I have been my request was lost in the mail and then lost faxes . I requested the money be sent overnight, secured and tracked. I was told the check was cut and mailed one week ago. Apparently, it's a lost item again!
I have lost trust and respect from this unprofessional group and will be moving my assets..
