Royal Bank has several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Royal Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about looking elsewhere 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. Royal Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
