Structured Bank Deposits

Dovish Fed Creates Opportunity to Strengthen Cash Portfolios
The Fed has changed its stance with a markedly more conservative tone toward potential interest rate movements in 2019. This more dovish posture combined with a flattening of the yield curve has made structured bank deposits more competitive with money market funds and other direct cash vehicles from a risk/return perspective in operating and core cash portfolios. 

This webinar will focus on the current state of the cash market, explore the benefits of incorporating the Federally Insured Cash Account (FICA®) into short-term/liquidity portfolios, and why structured bank products are positioned to potentially outperform government funds over the near term.
