CDARS - Investment Program

With CDARS, you can access FDIC protection on multi-million dollar CD Investments through Bank of the West. CDARS can be a valuable cash management or longer-term investment tool for you.1

How does CDARS work?

Bank of the West is a member of a special network. When you place a large amount with us, we place your funds into CD's issued by other banks in the same network - in increments of less than $250,000 - so both principal and interest are eligible for complete FDIC protection. As a result, you can receive coverage from many banks while working with just one.

These exchanges, which occur on a dollar-for-dollar basis, can bring the full amount of your original deposit back to our bank. As a result, we can make the full amount of your deposit available for community lending purposes.2


With help from CDARS, you can access:

Safety      Convenience      Community Investment2      CD-Level Rates

What else should I know?

Now, you no longer have to spend time managing multiple bank relationships, administering various interest rates, organizing interest disbursements from various sources, or manually consolidating monthly statements. this reduces your administrative burden, especially during tax and financial reporting seasons.

And with CDARS, you can eliminate the need to monitor changing collateral values - another time saving convenience.

Of course, your confidential information remains protected.
