FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading personal finance website GOBankingRates identified the highest five-year CD rates in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Consumers seeking a safe place to grow capital typically find certificates of deposit have higher yields than regular savings accounts.

"CD rates vary geographically because local institutions are pursuing different goals," said Amanda Garcia of GOBankingRates. "Local CD rates depend on several factors, including the current lending environment, available capital and level of competition for deposits among financial intuitions."

GOBankingRates also compared the average Fort Lauderdale CD rate against state and national averages.
