mortgages<br /><ul><li>A mortgage bank is a state-licensed banking entity that makes mortgage loans directly to consumers. The difference between a mortgage banker and a mortgage broker is that the mortgage banker funds loans with its own capital.

The process of selling a loan from the mortgage bank to another investor is referred to as selling the loan on the secondary market.</li></li></ul><li>Certificates of Deposit<br />A certificate of Deposit (CD) is a time deposit, a financial product commonly offered to consumers in the United States by banks, thrift institutions, and credit unions.<br />CDs are similar to savings accounts in that they are insured and thus virtually risk-free; they are "money in the bank".
