JPMorgan Chase & Co. offers most of its customers a one-year certificate of deposit paying a 2% interest rate. The bank recently offered clients of broker Fidelity Investments a nearly identical product–at 4.5%.

Banks are selectively raising interest rates on deposits following the Federal Reserve’s steep rate increases this year. Many are paying their best rates on so-called brokered CDs, which well-off customers buy through brokerage firms. The offers are helping CDs–deposits that are locked up for a set period–regain popularity after falling out of favor in the era of low rates that followed the financial crisis.
