There is nothing that is no risk. Even the most protected investment has inflation risk to deal with. All these savings vehicles at under 2% are barely exceeding the inflation rate so your not gaining any real purchasing power. Your best off putting funds for short term investment goals in a convenient savings account (rather than worrying about an 0.1% difference) and spend your efforts on your long term investments which should be in a diversified portfolio including equities so you can exceed the inflation rate.
