Introduction:

Introduction Though banks offer several different types of accounts, they can be broadly divided into three types – Savings Accounts Money Market Deposit Accounts Certificates of Deposit

PowerPoint Presentation:

Contd… All these bank accounts are offered by the major banks if not the small ones, so the bank you choose probably won’t restrict this decision, although it does make sense to choose the account type you want first, so you can focus on that type as you shop around to various banks. So here are some more details about these banks:

PowerPoint Presentation:

Savings Accounts These are intended to provide an incentive for you to save money They usually pay an interest rate that is higher than a checking account but lower than a money market account Some savings accounts charge a fee if your balance falls below a specified minimum

PowerPoint Presentation:

Money Market Deposit Accounts (MMDAs) These accounts invest your balance in short-term debt such as commercial paper or Treasury Bills The rates that they offer tend to be slightly higher than those on interest-bearing checking accounts, but they usually require a higher minimum balance to start earning interest These accounts provide only limited check writing privileges, and often impose a service fee if your balance falls below a certain level

PowerPoint Presentation:

Certificates of Deposit (CDs) These are also known as “time deposits” because the account holder has agreed to keep the money in the account for a specified amount of time, i.e., anywhere from three months to six years The money will be inaccessible, and the account holder is rewarded with a higher interest rate, with the rate increasing as the duration increases
