CIT Bank ( BankOnCIT.com), a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insured online bank and wholly-owned subsidiary of CIT Group Inc. (NYSE: CIT) cit.com, a leading provider of financing to small businesses and middle market companies, today announced the launch of a new Two-Year Achiever CD (certificate of deposit) offering consumers an APY (annual percentage yield) of 1.26%.
“The unique savings features of CIT Bank’s existing One-Year Achiever CD have been well-received by consumers and we believe our new Two-Year Achiever CD will be equally as popular,” said Raymond J. Quinlan, CIT Group Inc. Executive Vice President, Banking. “This new product complements our existing group of CD offerings and is designed to help consumers achieve a range of financial goals.”
CIT Bank’s Achiever CDs offer consumers a one-time opportunity to increase their savings potential – if CD rates go up, customers can opt to take advantage of the higher rate by raising their rate. Customers can also elect to increase their deposit level one time during the term of the CD.
CIT Bank’s other consumer deposit product offerings include a range of CDs including:
- TERM CDs : These certificates of deposit allow consumers to lock in interest rates for between six months and three years.
- JUMBO CDs : These certificates of deposit offer consumers higher certificate of deposit rates for larger deposits.
