Below are the highest yielding money market account rates serving citizens of the state of Colorado.

If you are strictly after the best interest rate then you have a variety of options that will provide you with similar yields. The question you need to ask yourself is, “what type of minimum balance can I keep?” Most money market accounts provide a given interest rate based on a certain account balance. The more money you are able to keep in these accounts, the higher the interest rate you will generally receive.

After sorting through dozens of interest rate tables belonging to banks and credit unions serving the state of Colorado, we have found that in most instances you will be able to lock in more competitive rates with national institutions rather than local ones. Before committing to one of the banks/credit unions listed below, you may want to browse through our archive of money market account interest rates.

Keep in mind, money market rates are time-sensitive in nature, therefor you may want to refer to the date of this article for accuracy. As with all money market accounts, the interest rates are variable and are subject to change without notice.
