Focus Bank offers several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Focus Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about other options for banks that deliver more return for your money. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. Focus Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the national average.
