Best safe(er) option for investing $100,000 for 12 months? ?

I’ve been looking into CD’s but I feel like the return is kinda low at 2 percent

    Actually 2% is high for a safe option for 12 months; some are closer to 0%.

    2% is about as high as it gets for safe options for 12 months. Anything much higher would not be a safe option for 12 months.

    Risk equals reward.  Low risk investments in this rate environment are yielding that.  At least inflation (in the US) is low.

    You won't find much better than a 2.5% return for 12-13 months with no risk.

    If you accept risk, you can strive for more. Can you risk losing money?

    It's definitely low, especially with $100,000 to invest. Have you consulted a financial advisor?

    You can probably get a little better return for a little more risk by buying an investment grade bond, but for the most safety you probably should stick with a CD.

    If you need the principle to be safe, 2% is about the best that you are going to do.

    get a Roth IRA.  there you can pick safe accounts that you can use towards retirement.  i have mine through Charles Schwab.  they're similar to a 401k.  go see a financial adviser.  most give free consultations.
