Like most people, you probably maintain a number of accounts, each to handle a different aspect of your finances. Our full-service brokerage platform is designed to help you manage your investments more efficiently and get more organized.

Comprehensive account services

In addition to the benefits above, we can also help you manage your cash flow and make the most of your reserves.

With a Premier Plus Account, we can turn an ordinary investment account into a powerful asset management tool that consolidates your investing, checking, and Visa® debit services into one convenient account. Plus, all of your account activity is organized for you on one, comprehensive statement providing a complete picture of your portfolio — including your cash — empowering you to track and monitor your finances with ease. Clients with a Premier Plus Account have access to many features and money-saving benefits, including:

Simplified money management

No matter the investment type, you will have all the power of an investment account plus the convenience of cash management features that allow you to:

  • View how much your money has earned
  • Track what your investments are worth
  • Know where your money is being spent
  • Measure investment performance quarterly
  • Prepare taxes accurately and easily

Cash Sweep Program

Your brokerage account also has a cash-sweep program for the automatic investment of uninvested cash balances in your account. The program is an interest-bearing, automated bank-deposit, cash-sweep program, insured with the FDIC. In addition to earning a return on uninvested cash, you get the benefit of:

  • Multiple banks and a tiered interest-rate structure
  • Automatic sweeps into the Insured Cash Account or a money market fund
  • Instant account transfers when cash is needed to cover a debit

Collateralized Lending

You also have access to business and consumer lines of credit through select banks. Your line of credit is collateralized by securities on deposit in your brokerage and advisory accounts. Securities being used as collateral for a line of credit cannot be used to buy or carry margin securities or other investments.
