Now You Can Make Money Again From a Long Dormant Investment


Finding a secure place to park excess cash that actually pays you some interest has been a challenge for more than a decade. 

With central banks holding rates down to boost or protect economic activity for most of the past decade, it’s been hard to get anything for your money. 

For years, bank certificates of deposit were Wall Street’s version of unused books gathering dust on the shelf with little or no demand.

2021 and 2022 have changed that equation, as rising interest rates have lit a fire under the bank CD market, where 3.5%-to-4% returns are commonplaces across the fruited plains.
