The Safe Investment That Will Soon Yield Almost 10%
There’s no such thing as a free lunch in finance. Except maybe this: The interest rate on inflation-adjusted US savings bonds will approach 10% beginning in May.
US Treasury Series I Bonds, or I Bonds, will offer annual interest payments of 9.6%, based on the bond’s latest inflation rate calculation, which is tied to March’s consumer-price index. Prices rose by 8.5% year over year in March, the fastest pace since December 1981, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
