CD APY Range
Ivy Bank Certificates (CDs) Rates
In general, the Ivy CD rates offered by this bank may not be considered attractive compared to rates offered by other banks and credit unions. The only CD term that stands out as competitive is the 12-month CD option, which offers a competitive APY compared to the market average. However, the remaining CD terms provide lower APYs compared to industry standards.
A significant drawback is the limited number of CD terms available. With only three terms to choose from, and two of them being long-term options, it poses a challenge for investors seeking shorter-term CD options, such as six months or 18 months, which currently offer higher APYs across various CD terms.
Furthermore, investors who utilize CD strategies like CD laddering may find their options limited due to the bank's low variety of terms offered. This lack of flexibility can restrict investors from effectively implementing their CD investment strategies.
High Yield Savings Account
In contrast to CDs, the high yield savings account provided by Ivy Bank offers a highly competitive interest rate of 4.80%, as of September 2023. This is high even compared to the top savings accounts. While the minimum deposit required may not be exceptionally low, it remains reasonable for the majority of customers.
One of the drawbacks of a high-yield savings account is that customers are allowed a maximum of six transfers or withdrawals per calendar month. Any withdrawals or transfers from the account can only be made payable to the account owners.
To fund the Ivy Bank Savings account, customers have the option to use Plaid for authentication or manually enter their external bank's routing and account numbers. Deposits to the account can be made through eTransfer, Mobile Deposit, domestic wire transfer, or mail deposit.
When it comes to withdrawing money from the Ivy Bank Savings account, customers can use eTransfer, domestic wire transfer, or request a Treasurer's Check. Similar to transfers, withdrawals can only be made payable to one or more of the account owners.
Online (Mobile) Checking Account
The Ivy Bank mobile checking account offers several convenient features. With Mobile Deposit, customers can easily deposit checks by taking a picture using their Apple device (iPhone or iPad) or an Android smartphone through the Ivy Mobile Banking app. Using this method, they can deposit up to $50,000 per day and a total of $100,000 within a 30-day period.
Ivy Bank provides a powerful money management feature called Money Management. It allows customers to view all their accounts in one central dashboard, including accounts from other financial institutions.
Customers can visualize their spending by category across all accounts, set and manage budgets, uncover trends in their spending over time, manage debts, view their net worth, access their credit score and report, and receive alerts and monitoring for their credit position.
Customers can make transfers from their external accounts into their Ivy Bank account within Online and Mobile Banking. The maximum transfer limit is $250,000 per transaction and up to $1,000,000 per month. Wire funds can be transferred from domestic external accounts to the Ivy Bank account, with a maximum balance limit of $1,000,000.
