What can MLCDs do for you?
Find growth potential
With Market-Linked CDs it’s possible to increase the opportunity of seeing greater returns. MLCDs are designed to provide investors with the ability to participate in the performance of the underlying index, while retaining certain characteristics of a traditional CD.
Limit downside risk
If the performance of the underlying index of an MLCD drops the principal investment is protected. It is important to highlight that Market-Linked CDs only guarantee principal back at maturity and thus if an investor sells or redeems their investment prior to maturity, they may receive a return of less than their original investment.
In addition to principal protection, MLCDs offer the safety of an FDIC-insured CD. MLCDs carry insurance protection, subject to limitations, including FDIC coverage up to $250,000 per account title. Please refer here for more information regarding FDIC insurance and limits.
