Topic: Near Monies <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Near monies are savings, but there are several different types of savings.

Types of savings:

  • Standard savings accounts: They pay an interest, but lack check-writing privileges. These are relatively liquid.
  • Certificates of deposit (CDs): They require a minimum deposit for a specified time period and pay higher interest rates. They are less liquid than savings accounts.
  • Money market funds: These funds are invested in negotiable, short-term assets like U.S, treasury bills or commercial paper.
  • Overnight Eurodollars: Accounts denominated in U.S. dollars that are held in foreign banks.
  • Overnight repurchase agreements: Interest-paying business savings accounts that are temporary repositories of non-interest paying business checking account balances.
