4-Year CD Rates

CDs come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The 4-year CD, or 48 month share certificate as it is sometimes called, is a longer term time deposit that provides a safe alternative to other market investments while issuing a decent return on principal. Opening a CD with a bank or credit union is typically an easy process and can be done via the institutions’ online banking platform.

4-Year CD Rate History – Average APY (%) Rate Trend over Time

What is a CD?

A CD, or certificate of deposit, is a deposit made to a financial institution for a specified, and agreed upon, period of time. CDs are illiquid and non-transactional accounts that come with rules governing their behavior and how they can be used. Early withdrawal penalties can eat a large percentage of interest earned by a CD, so it is best to make sure that you won’t be needing your deposit back until the CD’s maturity date.

The Barbell Strategy

A savvy investing strategy is Barbell investing. By opening several short term CDs as well as several long term CDs, you can take advantage of high interest rates while avoiding a drop-off in interest with the medium-term CDs. Because you will have short-term CDs maturing soon, you will be able to take advantage of medium-term CDs when their interest rates increase. 4-Year CDs would be on the “heavy” end of your barbell because they generally offer a high yield compared to that being offered by CDs on the other end.
