A credit default swap (CDS) is a financial exchange agreement that the seller of the CDS compensates the buyer in the event of a debt default (by the debtor) or other credit event.  That is, the seller of the CDS insures the buyer against the loss of a reference asset. The buyer of the CDS makes a number of payments (the CDS “fees” or “spread”) to the seller and can, in return, expect a payment in the event of default of the asset. Certificates of deposit are one of the safest savings or investment vehicles that exist for two reasons. First, their rate is fixed and guaranteed, so there is no risk that the return on your CD will be reduced or even fluctuating. What you`ve signed up for is what you receive – it`s in your deposit contract with the bank or credit union. The outing will obviously not be free. The most common way for financial institutions to consider early termination is to evaluate an early repayment indemnity (EWP) on the product before your funds are distributed, under certain conditions and calculations set out in your deposit agreement when you first opened the certificate. This means that you can know, before accepting the CD, whether the prepayment indemnity is acceptable to you. The fiduciary account is subject to a separate agreement. We will abide by the terms of any separate agreement that clearly relates to this account and that you submit to us. Any additional consistency requirements listed here also apply.

A CD is a form of fixed currency. In exchange for a higher interest rate, you promise to keep your cash in the bank for a predetermined period of time. The bank agrees to pay you more interest than you will receive from a savings account in exchange for this agreement. You`ll have a higher annual rate of return (APY) on the funds you pay, because the bank knows it can use your money for longer-term investments, like loans, and won`t ask you to do so next week. In the days and weeks leading up to Bear`s collapse, the bank`s cdS spread widened significantly, indicating an increase in the number of buyers receiving protection from the bank.
