    This is not my field, but I'll give you some possible ideas.

    You are describing someone who is willing to have his money tied up for a longer period of time (a 5-yr CD) for a higher rate of interest, not a person who wants a faster turnaround for a lower rate of interest. Therefore, this person might be --

    **a person who will retire in 5-6 years.
    **a person who has a child who will enter college in 5-6 years.
    **a person who plans to look for a home to buy in 5-6 years.
    **etc. (What are other financial goals people have?)
