Of the $1.5 trillion in CDs at branch banks, 90% will mature in the next 12 months – 10% of them this month alone and that monthly percentages will climb even higher later this summer (see chart).  

Curinos’ Deposit Analyzer estimates that interest rates on maturing CDs will be 4%+ on average for most of 2024 before sloping down to 3% in the first quarter of next year. This downward rate trend creates significant attrition risk, especially among first-time renewers. Those shopping around will find plenty of offers above 5%.
