Why CDARS® ?


It’s one-stop shopping. With help from CDARS, you can access:

  • Safety – Your money can receive up to $50 million in FDIC insurance coverage.
  • Convenience – You work directly with SpiritBank. You earn one interest rate and receive one regular statement. Private investors receive one year-end tax form.
  • Community Investment – The full value of your money can support SpiritBank’s lending opportunities in your Oklahoma community.
  • CD-Level Rates – Your money earns CD-level returns which may compare favorably with other investment alternatives, including Treasuries, corporate sweep accounts, and money market mutual funds.

    How does CDARS work?

    SpiritBank is a member of a special network. When you place a large amount with SpiritBank, we place your funds into certificates of deposit issued by other banks in the network – in increments of less than $250,000 – so that both your principal and interest are eligible for complete FDIC protection. With help from a sophisticated matching system, we exchange deposits with other banks that are members of the network.
    These exchanges, which occur on a dollar-for-dollar basis, brings the full amount of your original deposit back to SpiritBank. As a result, we can make the full amount of your deposit available for community lending purposes.

    What else should I know? Now, you no longer need to run around opening multiple accounts at multiple banks, managing 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 account information remains protected.

    Open an account quickly and conveniently.
