Certificate Of Deposit

A certificate of deposit is a receipt issued by a depository institution (such as a bank, credit union, or a finance insurance company) to a depositor who opens a certificate account or time deposit account. Issued in a negotiable or non-negotiable form, it states the (1) amount deposited, (2) rate of interest, and (3) minimum period for which the deposit should be maintained without incurring early withdrawal penalties.
