For individuals looking to grow their saving account, investing in a certificate of deposits (CD) is a great way to get started.
Recently, Fidelity introduced fractional CDs that allow anyone to participate in buying their first federally insured savings deposit at reduced minimums and increments.
Specifically, the Fidelity fractional CD starts at $100 as the minimum investment requirement.
