ICS® and CDARS®
The Insured Cash Sweep (ICS)® and Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Services (CDARS)® products offer competitive interest rates while providing complete FDIC coverage on amounts over the $250,000 federal limit. When your business places its deposits through the ICS® and/or CDARS® service, that deposit is divided into amounts under the standard FDIC insurance maximum of $250,000, which are placed in demand deposit accounts (using the ICS® demand option), money market deposit accounts (using the ICS® savings option), and/or CDs (using CDARS®) at multiple banks. As a result, clients can access guaranteed multi-million dollar coverage from many institutions while working directly with just one: Altabank. We’ll manage the multi-bank relationship for you without any service fees. You’ll receive a single monthly statement for all your holdings with a consolidated, blended interest rate to ease administrative burdens and get a quick picture of your federally insured savings. Peace of mind, piece of cake.
