CDARS® – Access Multi-Million-Dollar FDIC Insurance

CDARS® is the Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service®.  It’s the most convenient way to enjoy access to multi-million-dollar FDIC insurance on your CD deposit.  CDARS is the perfect solution for many depositors – from non-profits and public funds to businesses and advisors (including trustees, CPA’s, financial planners, and attorneys). Almost anyone who wants to combine the convenience of working directly with one financial institution with the security of FDIC insurance can benefit from CDARS.

Key Features

  • One Bank:  You work directly with Brentwood Bank – a local institution you know and trust – to protect large deposits.
  • One Rate:  You earn one interest rate per maturity on CD investments placed through CDARS.  With CDARS, there is no need to negotiate multiple rates.
  • One Statement:  You receive one monthly statement detailing your CD investments.


How CDARS Works

Everything is handled through Brentwood Bank.  Your large deposit is broken into smaller amounts and placed with other banks that are members of the CDARS Network.  Then, those banks issue CDs in amounts under the standard FDIC insurance maximum, so that your investment is eligible for FDIC protection.  By working directly with just one bank – Brentwood Bank – you can receive insurance through many.1
And, because funds are exchanged with other CDARS Network members institutions on a dollar-for-dollar basis, the amount of your original deposit comes back to Brentwood Bank, and can be utilized to support lending initiatives in our local communities.2

1 Limits apply.  Funds may be submitted for placement only after a depositor enters into a CDARS Deposit Placement Agreement with us.  The agreement contains important information and conditions regarding the placement of funds by us.  CDARS and Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service are registered service marks of Promontory Interfinancial Network, LLC.
2 When deposited funds are exchanged on a dollar-for-dollar basis with other banks in the Network, we can use the full amount of a deposit placed through CDARS for local lending, satisfying some depositors’ local investment goals or mandates.  Alternatively, with a depositor’s consent, our bank may choose to receive fee income instead of deposits from other banks.  Under these circumstances, deposited funds would not be available for local lending.
