There is a 5yr FIA with an "A" Rated company that will keep your money from market risk and pays interest based on the Barklay's Capital Bond Index. In the last 5 years it returned 4.74%, 1.64%, 5.4%, 3.3%, and 4.72%. On top of this interest, owners have 10% liquidity each year. You can't do that with a CD.
