Fidelity also offers FDIC–insured brokered certificates of deposit (CDs). Choose the maturity that suits you, from 3 months to 10 years, from an inventory of original issue or secondary market certificates.1
Both Treasury securities purchased at auction and new-issue CDs with a term to maturity of five years or less are eligible for the Auto Roll Program. This service allows you to have the proceeds of the principal from a maturing Treasury or CD to automatically be used to purchase the same type of security with a similar maturity and coupon payment frequency.
Another option from Fidelity is securities issued by government agencies. Although not guaranteed by the U.S. Government in the way that U.S. Treasury securities are, Agency/GSE bonds are securities from Government Sponsored Enterprises such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Banks.2 Choose from an inventory of original issues or secondary issues.
If liquidity is a goal, consider U.S. Treasury money market funds, which give you convenient daily access to U.S. Treasury securities with a range of short maturities. U.S. Government Money Market Funds normally invest their assets in U.S. Treasury and government agency debt, as well as repurchase agreements involving those securities.
Prime (also known as general purpose) money market mutual funds may invest in securities of corporations as well as government entities.
