Laddering of CDs is a way to obtain high interest rates by purchasing long maturity CDs but at the same time building in a significant amount of flexibility so that you can adapt to market conditions. It involves a strategy that involves multiple CDs maturing in consecutive years. You start the ladder by buying several CDs at one time but with different maturity dates, for example, one year, two year, three year, four year, and five year CDs. Every year one of your CDs will mature and you can roll it over into a new CD with a longer term (if rates are high) and higher rate.
