10 Highest CD Rates in New York City

A new study from leading banking and personal finance website GOBankingRates identified the highest five-year CD rates in New York City. Consumers seeking low-risk investments and a safe place to grow capital typically find certificates of deposit yield a higher rate of interest than regular savings accounts.

“CD rates vary geographically because local institutions are all striving to accomplish different goals,” said Amanda Garcia of GOBankingRates. “The highest CD interest rates in a city or state will depend on several factors, including the current lending environment, capital available, and level of competition for deposits among local banks and credit unions.”

GOBankingRates also compared the average CD rate in New York City with state and national averages.
