While most of our members come to us for their borrowing needs, RTFC also offers investment options for its members who want to put their surplus cash to work by taking advantage of several investment products.
Available through RTFC’s affiliate, the National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation (CFC), these opportunities are available for short- or long-term investing.
RTFC members and affiliates can earn interest on their temporary cash surpluses of $5,000 or more by investing in CFC Commercial Paper, an investment option with maturities ranging from one day to 270 days.
CFC's Daily Fund offers RTFC members a flexible investment account, similar to a money market account, that allows telcos to invest and earn a return on short-term cash surpluses of at least $50,000 without committing to a specific maturity date.
RTFC members and affiliates can earn interest on their general funds of $100,000 or more by investing in CFC Medium-Term Notes. These senior unsecured debt securities have maturities ranging from 10 to 24 months.
RTFC members and affiliates can invest in Select Notes to take advantage of a higher interest rate of return than other CFC short-term investment products. Terms range from 30 to 270 days with a minimum investment of $100,000.
