What is the Difference Between a Certificate of Deposit (CDs) and a Share Certificate?

They are actually the same kind of investment. The difference is that a bank can issue CDs, while only a credit union can offer share certificates. Because of this, these investments are also insured by different organizations. While certificates of deposit are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), share certificates are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF).
