How To Earn More Money From Your Savings Now That Banks are Raising Interest Rates

Your bank may have a higher-yielding savings account — but it won’t necessarily let you know.  The Federal Reserve has raised its key interest rate five times this year, most recently on Wednesday, as part of its ongoing effort to slow the pace of inflation.

The idea is that since the U.S. central bank is making it more expensive to borrow money, the demand for goods and services will drop, thereby causing prices to fall.  A side effect of those increased interest rates is that banks can increase the amount of money they pay to consumers who put some of their dollars in savings accounts. As banks earn more on the money they lend, those same institutions can offer higher returns to their customers.

Think of it as the virtuous cycle of the lending and saving relationship that banks have with their customers. But until recently, the interest earned on savings accounts hasn’t been all that impressive. “Every interest rate has fallen quite far from previous decades,” said Bankrate.com chief financial analyst Greg McBride in an email.

Up until this year, McBride said, interest rates had declined for the better part of 40 years — and so has the amount of money that banks pay into those accounts. “Looking back to the early 1980s, the Fed funds rate, Treasury yields, and mortgage rates were in the double digits,” he said. “In 1990, the Fed funds rate was over 8%, Treasury yields were 7% to 9%, mortgage rates were 10%.

“By 2020, the Fed funds rate was near zero, Treasury yields were under 2%, and mortgage rates were 2.5% to 3%.”Now that these rates are rising again, money costs more money. But that means there’s an opportunity to get higher returns on deposits. McBride advises customers to shop around to get the best return on their savings.

Not all banks have significantly increased their interest rates for savings accounts. According to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the average national savings account interest rate is 0.17%. Those low interest rates on savings account deposits recently caught the attention of lawmakers on Capitol Hill, who pressed big bank CEOs last week on why rates weren’t higher.

“As rates continue to rise, we would expect to continue to raise the rates we pay to customers,” Wells Fargo CEO Charlie Scharf said in congressional testimony Thursday. Some financial institutions, especially those that are Internet-only with no brick-and-mortar locations, have traditionally advertised higher interest rates with their high-yield savings account products. Some of these banks offer more than 1% or 2% — and in some rare cases more than 3% on savings accounts, according to NerdWallet representative Chanelle Bessette.

Bessette said online banks have fewer overhead costs than brick-and-mortar branches, and also must do more to compete for deposits. Both Bankrate and NerdWallet offer lists of institutions currently offering the highest yields. Among them are Discover, Capital One, American Express Savings, and Marcus by Goldman Sachs. McBride, the chief financial analyst for Bankrate.com, said it is easy to enroll in one of those accounts, even if you do your primary banking elsewhere.

“You can open an online savings account with just a few minutes of your time, and link it to the checking account at your current financial institution in order to move money back and forth seamlessly,” he said. “If your bank has rolled out a new savings account with a higher yield than the one you’re currently in, just reach out and ask to transfer your money into the new, higher yielding account.”

In some cases, banks aren’t making it clear to existing customers that they can now obtain a greater savings-account yield, McBride said. “We are seeing some chicanery where banks roll out a new savings account that offers an attractive yield while the existing account holders remain in the original account with the original rate,” McBride said in an email.

“It is easy enough to switch to the new account, but you have to take the action to make that happen, the bank won’t come knocking on your door with that opportunity.”

Critics by

Savings interest rates have slowly been going up in the last few months, and the Federal Reserve has continued to raise interest rates to address inflation. If you’re ready to take charge of your savings and find ways to earn more interest on your money, here are five options to explore.

1. Ask your bank for an increase in your savings rate

While savings interest rates have tentatively increased in the last few months across various financial institutions, this doesn’t necessarily mean your savings account will see a sudden bump in its rate.

If your bank hasn’t made an announcement yet, Maggie Gomez,  CFP® professional and owner of Money with Maggie, suggests asking your bank for an increase in the current rate you receive. 

Gomez explains some financial institutions won’t immediately deliver a higher rate unless consumers get proactive. “Later, to be more competitive, they’ll increase their rates more publicly, but I think it’ll be really slow,” Gomez adds.

2. Search online financial institutions for a high-yield savings account

According to the FDIC, the national average rate interest rate on savings accounts is 0.17% APY as of May 2022. However, several financial institutions pay much more than the national rate.

Jerel Butler, CFP® professional and founder of Millennial Financial Solutions, suggests looking at online financial institutions for competitive interest rates on savings accounts.

“It’s a little bit tricky with inflation going on,” Butler notes. “The best savings option for a typical savings account is an online savings account.”

Most banks earn compound interest daily. Meanwhile, credit unions usually earn compound interest monthly. If you’re not sure about your account’s compound frequency, contact your bank’s customer support.

3. Consider switching banks if the rate is worth it

Butler says you should also take the time to explore other financial institutions and compare different savings accounts. 

“This is a great chance to take advantage of the rising interest rate market, and you may be able to take advantage of a welcome bonus at another bank,” adds Butler. “A lot of banks — as a result of the higher interest rates — are running special promotions, too.”

If you find a specific account that provides more compelling offers than your current bank, you might consider switching institutions. 

4. Buy savings bonds

Savings bonds are federally issued debt securities. Lindsey Bell, chief markets and money strategist for Ally, says federally issued bonds are a safe investment option, although there are a couple of things to keep in mind. 

“There’s a limit on what you can invest in those. They are also probably a little more volatile than a CD or savings account, so you have to take that into account,” explains Bell. 

5. Build a CD ladder with short-term CDs if you find a competitive rate

Butler says building a CD ladder might be ideal if you find a competitive rate and are generally risk-averse. However, if you’re not risk-averse, Butler adds there are more options you should consider first.

CD ladders offer a way to take advantage of higher interest rates on CDs. Instead of depositing all your money into a single CD and locking your deposits for a set time, you’ll split your savings into a mix of term lengths.

Bell suggests sticking to CDs under one or two-year terms. If interest rates increase during the year, a CD ladder provides enough flexibility to buy a new CD once your short-term accounts mature.

Banking habits continue to evolve as consumers are given more and more choices of where and how they bank. While traditional banking still has its loyal fanbase, it’s hard to compete with the convenience of being able to manage your bank accounts from a computer or smartphone.

The appreciation for face-to-face human interaction that comes with the best banks and credit unions may never go away, but the reputation that traditional banks have for charging high fees and paying low interest rates might leave you wondering how exactly you’re benefiting from keeping your money there.

When compared with traditional brick-and-mortar banks, online savings accounts often offer better interest rates, giving your savings a chance to grow. This is especially true if you open a high-yield online savings account. Learn more about these types of accounts and how you could benefit from one.

What is an online savings account?

An online savings account is a savings account with a financial institution that usually doesn’t have any brick-and-mortar branches and operates fully online. Even though they’re completely digital, online savings accounts must follow the same banking regulations as traditional banks, such as Regulation D of the Federal Reserve limiting the number of withdrawals each month to six.

Since all of your interactions with your account take place digitally, you have the freedom to manage your savings when and wherever you like, without the hassle of having to add another stop to your schedule or having to wait for the bank to open. The websites and mobile apps for online banks are essentially storefronts, so online banks often devote lots of resources to make sure they’re optimized and easy-to-navigate. This allows you to skip the lines at the bank and seamlessly move your money around with just a few clicks.

The absence of physical locations also means online banks don’t have to pay the typically associated costs, such as maintenance or real estate costs. These savings are often passed on to online bank customers in the form of higher interest rates, lower fees, no monthly maintenance fees, and no minimum account balances. This gives customers more flexibility and freedom to do what they want with their money. This means they can be a good fit for financial goals like building an emergency fund.

Online savings accounts do have their drawbacks when compared to a traditional brick-and-mortar bank, however. If you regularly deal with cash, for instance, you might find yourself without any means of depositing into your account. That’s because some online banks don’t provide ATM access. This might require a separate checking account just to handle these sorts of transactions. For those who don’t want accounts spread across multiple institutions, this could be an inconvenience.

On the plus side, there are online checking accounts that provide debit cards that can even earn you cash back or that provide budgeting tools in their mobile apps. So it’s important that you shop around to see what each bank offers and to find the account that fits your needs.

How do deposits and withdrawals work in an online savings account?

Most online banks offer several ways to make deposits and withdrawals, though they might vary from bank to bank. Here are the most common ways to fund and get money out of an online savings account:

Depositing funds into your account

  • Transfer funds from a linked account, also known as an ACH (Automated Clearing House) Transfer (usually takes one to three business days)
  • A check, either by mail or mobile check deposit
  • Direct deposit from your employer
  • Wire transfer

Withdrawing money from your account

  • Transfer money to a linked account
  • Request a check
  • Outgoing wire transfer
  • ATMs, if your savings account is linked to a debit card

Things get a bit more complicated when it comes to depositing cash because of the lack of physical branches. While there are some online banks that have a few retail locations, like Capital One cafes, these are few and far between. If you find yourself needing to deposit cash, you can try one of these options:

Cash deposits

  • Deposit locally into an account with a physical branch and transfer the funds electronically
  • Buy a money order and deposit it like you would a check
  • Load cash onto a reloadable prepaid debit card, such as the American Express Bluebird card, and transfer the money electronically to your online savings account
  • Deposit into a ATM that accepts cash deposits (if available)

Top savings accounts for June 2022

With so many savings account options to choose from, it can all be a bit overwhelming. Factors like a high APY (annual percentage yield), minimum balance requirements, and fees are incredibly important when making your decision. You could get stuck with a low yield or hidden fees. Luckily, we’ve made it easy for you to pick the best option to start earning interest today. Check out our list of the best savings accounts for June 2022.

How to open an online savings account

If you decide that an online savings account can help you meet your savings goals or other personal finance goals, then you may be ready to open an account. The process for opening an online savings account is pretty straightforward. It should only take a few minutes and usually involves completing these steps:

  1. Fill out the application Here you’ll submit your personal identifying and contact information, including your name, date of birth, address, phone number, email, and tax identification number (such as a Social Security number).
  2. Choose your account typeYou’ll need to decide whether you want to be the sole account owner or if you want a joint account. If you choose to have a co-owner, you’ll need to enter the personal information of each account holder.
  3. Designate beneficiaries In this section, you can choose who will receive the money from your account in the event you pass away.
  4. Fund the account How much you must deposit depends on the bank — many require just $1, but others may require a larger minimum deposit to open the account. Once you decide on the amount, the most common methods to fund the account are by bank transfer, sending or depositing a check, or using a wire transfer.
  5. Set up your login information Since access to your savings account is online, you’ll need to set up a username and password to complete the setup of your account.

What kind of interest rates can I expect?

Higher interest rates are one of the major benefits of online savings accounts, though they vary from bank to bank. An account with Capital One 360, for instance, will give you an interest rate of 0.70% (as of June 3, 2022), while the Aspiration Spend & Save account offers up to 5.00% APY with Aspiration Plus (as of June 3, 2022). Online banks are generally a good place to look for a high-yield savings account with a competitively high APY.

How can online banks offer such good interest rates?

Because online-only banks don’t need to pay the employee wages, maintenance, and real estate costs associated with brick-and-mortar branches, they can charge fewer fees, require no minimum balance, require a low or no minimum opening deposit, and usually offer better interest rates.

What is the typical minimum balance for an online savings account?

The minimum balance requirement for an online savings account is usually structured one of three ways:

  • No minimum balance, which is typical for many online banks
  • A minimum balance to keep the account open, which could be as little as $1 or as much as several thousand dollars
  • A minimum balance to earn the advertised high interest rate, with anything less earning a lower APY

Is online banking safe? Is my money insured?

You’ll want to make sure your new bank has the words “member FDIC” somewhere on its website or marketing materials. The FDIC, or Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, is an independent agency of the United States government. If you deposit money at an FDIC-insured bank and the bank later fails, your money is protected (typically a maximum of $250,000 is covered) by that FDIC insurance

However, banks are not mandated to be FDIC-insured, so it’s always important to make sure the bank you’re considering is. To see if a bank is FDIC-insured, you can go to the FDIC BankFind page. If you are banking with a credit union, you’ll want to be sure they are covered by the NCUA.

Even if the account is insured by the FDIC, you want to make sure the bank you choose uses robust technology to protect your money because the FDIC does not provide reimbursements for fraud perpetrated against accounts.

Most banks offer some type of security guarantee and limited liability protection for its customers. Ally Bank, for example, offers a security guarantee, which states “that you will not be liable for any unauthorized Online or Mobile Banking transaction as long as you report the unauthorized transaction…within 60 days from when your statement is made available.” Ally also offers a range of security measures, from account monitoring to free anti-virus software that can protect up to three devices.

There are also measures you can take yourself to help protect your account from such events, such as setting up multi-factor authentication and text alerts, using difficult passwords, avoiding public Wi-Fi when accessing your bank information, and installing anti-virus software, to name a few.

Is your money stuck in an online savings account?

No. Just like a traditional savings account, your money is accessible to you when you need it. With just a few clicks, you can move money in and out of your savings and into another account.

Transfers to an account within the same bank are usually instant, while transferring to an account with a different bank might take a few business days before the funds are made available.

ECB Warns House Price Correction Looms As Interest Rates Rise

Eurozone property prices are set to correct as interest rates begin to rise in response to higher inflation, posing greater risks for low-income households, the Bank has warned. Central European.

A reversal in the region’s housing markets was one of the main risks identified by the ECB’s biannual financial stability review, which also warned that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine meant more companies were likely to default due to weaker growth, higher inflation and rising borrowing costs. .

Anticipating that asset prices could fall further if economic growth continues to weaken or if inflation rises faster than expected, the ECB said a sharp rise in rates could cause a “reversal” in oil prices. real estate in the euro zone, which it said were already overvalued by around 15%, relative to overall economic output and rents.

The central bank is preparing to raise its deposit rate in July for the first time in a decade and markets are expecting four quarter-point hikes this year, which it says “could challenge the valuations of riskier assets, such as equities”.

Mortgage rates in the eurozone have already been rising since the start of the year. The ECB’s composite indicator of the cost of borrowing to buy a home rose from a low of 1.3% last September to 1.47% in March.

“A sharp rise in real interest rates could induce house price corrections in the near term, with the current low level of interest rates making a substantial reversal in house prices more likely,” the statement said. ECB.

House prices rose nearly 10% in the euro zone last year, the fastest rate in more than two decades, according to data from Eurostat, the statistics office of the European Commission. They could fall between 0.83 and 1.17% for every 0.1 percentage point increase in mortgage rates, after adjusting for inflation, the ECB calculated.

The Bundesbank recently warned that German banks were becoming too complacent about the risk of borrower default and the possibility of rising interest rates, increasing the amount of capital lenders must put up as collateral for their mortgages.

“We think the German real estate market should peak in the next two years, probably around 2024, although it could be much earlier if we have an interest rate shock,” said Jochen Möbert, an analyst at Deutsche Bank Research. .

Rising interest rates will likely prompt institutional investors to shift money they have put into real estate into the German bond market, Möbert said, predicting that would likely happen when Bund yields rise from 1 % currently at between 2 and 4%. .

“Rental yields are below 4% in German cities on average and in metropolises they are lower, in some cases they are even 2.5%, so once the risk-free rates reach this level, it would be logical to go back to the Bunds,” he added.

The central bank said a switch to fixed-rate mortgages would shield many households from the immediate impact of rising borrowing costs.

Wealthier households could also cushion the blow by saving less or tapping into extra savings accumulated during the coronavirus pandemic, he said. However, he warned that this would leave lower-income households “more exposed to the inflationary shock”.

The ECB said its recent “vulnerability analysis” of the banking sector had shown it was “resilient to the macroeconomic ramifications of the war in Ukraine”.

Banks accounting for more than three-quarters of the sector’s assets would maintain a Tier 1 capital ratio above 9% in its “worst case scenario”, in which the eurozone economy shrinks over the next three years, it said. said the central bank.

Rising interest rates should increase banks’ credit margins in the short term. But Luis de Guindos, vice-president of the ECB, warned that “in the medium term, the situation could be different”.

De Guindos said banks’ profit margins could be eroded by a “duration gap” between rising short-term funding costs for banks and their longer-term loans, such as mortgages, which hold rates down. down for many years.

He admitted that the ECB had been “too pessimistic” in its 2020 warning that the fallout from the pandemic could lead to a €1.4 billion increase in non-performing loans for banks, which did not unfold. materialized as bankruptcies have instead fallen thanks to massive state support.

However, he said rising inflation and rising borrowing costs could cause some companies that have already been weakened during the pandemic to default. “Perhaps the insolvencies that didn’t happen during the pandemic could, at least in part, happen now,” he added.

Where Do Millionaires Keep Their Money?

Where do millionaires keep their money? High net worth individuals put money into different classifications of financial and real assets, including stocks, mutual funds, retirement accounts and real estate. Most of the 20.27 million millionaires in the U.S. did not inherit their money; only about 20% inherited their money. More than two-thirds of all millionaires are entrepreneurs. Here are some of the places the genuinely rich keep their money.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Many, and perhaps most, millionaires are frugal. If they spent their money, they would not have any to increase wealth. They spend on necessities and some luxuries, but they save and expect their entire families to do the same. Many millionaires keep a lot of their money in cash or highly liquid cash equivalents.

They establish an emergency account before ever starting to invest. Millionaires bank differently than the rest of us. Any bank accounts they have are handled by a private banker who probably also manages their wealth. There is no standing in line at the teller’s window.

Studies indicate that millionaires may have, on average, as much as 25% of their money in cash. This is to offset any market downturns and to have cash available as insurance for their portfolio. Cash equivalents, financial instruments that are almost as liquid as cash. are popular investments for millionaires. Examples of cash equivalents are money market mutual funds, certificates of deposit, commercial paper and Treasury bills.

Some millionaires keep their cash in Treasury bills that they keep rolling over and reinvesting. They liquidate them when they need the cash. Treasury bills are short-term notes issued by the U.S government to raise money. Treasury bills are usually purchased at a discount. When you sell them, the difference between the face value and selling price is your profit. Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, has a portfolio full of money market accounts and Treasury bills.

Millionaires also have zero-balance accounts with private banks. They leave their money in cash and cash equivalents and they write checks on their zero-balance account. At the end of the business day, the private bank, as custodian of their various accounts, sells off enough liquid assets to settle up for that day. Millionaires don’t worry about FDIC insurance. Their money is held in their name and not the name of the custodial private bank.

Other millionaires have safe deposit boxes full of cash denominated in many different currencies. These safe deposit boxes are located all over the world and each currency is held in a country where transactions are conducted using that currency.

Real Estate

For more than 200 years, investing in real estate has been the most popular investment for millionaires to keep their money. During all these years, real estate investments have been the primary way millionaires have had of making and keeping their wealth. The trend started with buying a primary home and then other residences, usually for tenants. After buying some personal real estate, then they have started buying commercial real estate like office buildings, hotels, stadiums, bridges and more.

Millionaires often have large real estate portfolios. Once they have established themselves as a buyer in the real estate market, real estate agents start bringing them deals and they find it easy to obtain financing. Large investors have many millions tied up in real estate. Real estate is not an investment to depend on for cash, but it is a lucrative investment in the long run and a tried and true investment for millionaires because they like passive income and find that real estate provides it.

Stocks and Stock Funds

Some millionaires are all about simplicity. They invest in index funds and dividend-paying stocks. They like the passive income from equity securities just like they like the passive rental income that real estate provides. They simply don’t want to use their time managing investments.

Ultra-rich investors may hold a controlling interest in one or more major companies. But, many millionaires hold a portfolio of only a few equity securities. Many may hold index funds since they earn decent returns and you don’t have to spend time managing them. They also have low management fees and excellent diversification.

Millionaires also like dividend-paying stocks for the passive income they provide. Of course, they are also interested in capital appreciation but, for some, that’s less of a concern than generating current income.

Private Equity and Hedge Funds

Unless you are a multimillionaire, you may not participate in a hedge fund or buy into a private equity fund. Public equity is well known since its shares trade on stock exchanges. One of its advantages is its liquidity. You can readily liquidate your public equity or shares of stock. Private equity funds, on the other hand, generally gets their investments from large organizations like universities or pension funds.

Investors of private equity funds have to be accredited investors with a certain net worth, usually at least $250,000. Accredited investors can be individuals as well as organizations, but they are defined by regulations. In other areas, private equity funds do not have to conform to as many regulations as public equity does. Some of the ultra-rich, if they are accredited investors, do invest in private equity.

Hedge funds are not the same as private equity. Hedge funds use pooled funds and pursue several strategies to earn outsized returns for their investors. Hedge funds invest in whatever fund managers think will earn the highest short-term profits possible.

Commodities

Commodities, like gold, silver, mineral rights or cattle, to name a few, are also stores of value for millionaires. But they require storage and have a level of complexity that many millionaires simply don’t want to deal with.

Alternative Investments

Some millionaires, along with the ultra-rich, keep a portion of their money in other alternative investments like such tangible assets as fine art, expensive musical instruments or rare books. Also, there are millionaires and the ultra-rich that have investments in intellectual property rights such as the rights to songs or movies. These can be very lucrative investments.

Cryptocurrency

It is estimated that there are around 100,000 cryptocurrency millionaires out there with the majority holding Bitcoin. To try to make your fortune in cryptocurrency, you have to be willing to take on some risk and many millionaires don’t have an appetite for risk.

You can take a small portion of a millionaire’s wealth and invest in one of the different cryptocurrencies. Plenty of people have become millionaires this way. Some have lost their money. More and more, cryptocurrency is becoming accepted as a legitimate investment that deserves a look when trying to accumulate wealth.

The Bottom Line

Millionaires have many different investment philosophies, so it’s difficult to generalize concerning where they keep their money. However, all of the above are legitimate investments for millionaires. They have a desire for a reduction of their risk, so many prefer diversified investment portfolios. More than one of these investments can be combined to try to enhance wealth.
