SimpliCD Issuance and Investing

SimpliCD is a certificate of deposit1 (CD) program managed by Primary Financial Company, LLC, that enables credit unions to easily invest in jumbo CDs, federally insured by NCUA. Creating a solid CD investment strategy has never been easier. SimpliCD acts at a custodial capacity on behalf of the credit union, passing all federally insured benefits through to the credit union, while the credit union remains the legal owner of the CDs. Manage your credit union’s liquidity risk in a secure environment and keep your credit union compliant with NCUA’s Regulation 741.12. Multiple certificates of deposit can be purchased in amounts between $99,000 and $250,000 at separately insured CD issuers. SimpliCD provides a detailed tracking system that ensures no more than the standard maximum deposit insurance amount is placed in any single financial institution within the program.

SimpliCD offers an issuing program and an investing program.

1 Certificates of deposits (CDs) are federal insured, low risk investments offered by financial institutions. These fixed term, and generally fixed interest rate, investments require members to keep funds allocated to the CD at the institution until the fixed maturity date. Once the investment reaches the maturity date, the member may withdraw the funds along with any accrued interest. A member may withdraw the funds early but will be required to pay a penalty thus losing the benefit of the deposit. There are two types of CDs: basic or traditional CDs and jumbo CDs. Jumbo CDs require higher deposit amounts, but pay a higher interest rate. In some cases, a jumbo CD may carry additional risk as well.
