Similar to popular Internet auction methods, the CD auctions available at www. zionsdirect.com may enable individual investors to receive higher yields on their CDs. Auctions at www.zionsdirect.com empower investors to set the yield on the CD for which they are bidding.

Zions Direct CD auctions allow private investors to obtain yields previously available only to large institutional investors.
