NORMAN, Okla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Oklahoma State Bank has announced the launch of a savings vehicle unlike any other in the marketplace: a certificate of deposit that pays interest to the investor on Day 1 of the deposit.
“There’s a guaranteed rate and interest is paid up front and ready to use any way a customer chooses…make a purchase, pay for a grandchild’s college tuition for the semester, contribute to an IRA at OSB, take a vacation or open a money market account earning more interest.”
CD1, the new certificate of deposit product became available to OSB and non-OSB customers on December 1. The minimum deposit is $50,000 with an annual percentage yield and interest rate of 2 percent and maturity period of five years. There are no hidden fees.
“To our knowledge, nothing like this exists in the country,” said Steve McDaniel, OSB President. “We are first in the market with our new savings product created specifically to take away the historic disadvantages of placing funds into this type of deposit and then waiting to receive your interest.”
“With OSB’s CD1, an investor can deposit $50,000 and walk out of our bank the same day with a check for just over $5,000.” McDaniel contrasted this with a conventional CD stating, “In a traditional CD, a depositor places the same $50,000 in the bank where it would remain paying the interest in small increments to the customer over that five years.”
“It is so simple, yet so innovative,” added McDaniel. “There’s a guaranteed rate and interest is paid up front and ready to use any way a customer chooses…make a purchase, pay for a grandchild’s college tuition for the semester, contribute to an IRA at OSB, take a vacation or open a money market account earning more interest.”
“While nothing is certain about the economy, what IS certain is that we all should be making solid savings plans,” added McDaniel. “With our new CD product, our clients know what they are getting AND can put that money to work for them today. It’s simple; it’s safe; and it’s smart.”
