Automated Sweep Services

These services allow you to use your cash effectively between accounts and lines of credits. Here is a list of sweep arrangements and how they work:

Overnight Investment Sweep

A primary business or municipal checking account is tied to an investment account. Funds are swept from the checking account overnight to the investment account to increase interest earnings. Funds are swept back into the checking account the following morning for operations.

Line of Credit Sweep

A primary business checking account is tied to a line of credit. Funds are swept from the checking account overnight to pay down the line of credit balance, reducing interest expense. Funds are swept back into the checking account the following morning for operations.

Dual Sweep Investment Accounts2

A combination of Sweep to Line and Sweep to Investment Account services. This strategy both minimizes interest expense and maximizes interest income.

Zero Balance Accounts

Funds from sub‐accounts can be transferred to or from a primary deposit account. Zero balance accounts are funded with just enough to cover checks presented. This cash pooling strategy eliminates excess balances in separate accounts, maintains greater control over disbursements, and maximizes interest earnings on balances in the primary account.
