In a low yield or low interest rate environment, extending the term or maturity of fixed interest rate investments becomes increasingly risky.  Inflation is a permanent facet in modern finance.   Low rate environments leave little room for rates to go lower and with inflation not likely to be eradicated, rising interest rates are generally only a matter of time.  Locking in long term bank CD rates eliminates any flexibility to reinvest at higher rates when the market changes.
