IntraFi Network Deposits sweep (formerly IND).

Using IntraFi Network Deposits sweep, your brokerage firm can provide its clients with a superior investment alternative—access to multi-million-dollar FDIC insurance via a multibank deposit sweep product. Sized for millions of accounts and transactions and used by brokerage firms to attract and place billions of dollars with banks, the IntraFi Network Deposits sweep leverages patented technology and is known as a “buttoned-up,” full-service offering.

IntraFi’s financial network — the largest of its kind — connects nearly 3,000 financial institutions. Our size works to your advantage. Our network includes virtually all of the nation’s largest banks, offering each access to tens of billions of dollars in deposits, distributed through dozens of sweep programs or more, and ensuring that each obtains the highly diversified funding it seeks. The diversification and size of our network provides our member banks with one-stop shopping for which they are willing to pay a premium. This, in turn, increases the returns that your brokerage firm can keep or pass along to its customers versus other solutions.

IntraFi Network Deposits DDA, MMDA (formerly ICS) and CD (formerly CDARS) offerings — stand out with expanded cash management options.

With IntraFi Network Deposits DDA, MMDA, and CD offerings, you can offer clients access to higher levels of FDIC coverage–into nine-figures. IntraFi Network Deposits can help you win clients’ wallet share from outside savings, investment accounts, and CDs, including those held in online banks. Your firm can control its margin and possibly earn higher commissions versus comparable investments. Brokerage firm clients are quick to appreciate the security offered by more FDIC insurance coverage and the opportunity to earn favorable returns with a risk profile comparable to Treasuries or money market mutual funds.

How the IntraFi Network Deposits DDA, MMDA, and CD solutions work — a straightforward, streamlined experience for your clients.

When a client submits a large deposit to a brokerage firm for placement in DDAs, MMDAs, or CDs, your institution places the funds into deposit accounts at FDIC-insured banks that are members of the IntraFi’s network of financial institutions. The client’s large deposit is broken down into smaller increments and placed with banks in IntraFi’s network so that the client can access FDIC protection from multiple institutions while maintaining a relationship with just onethe brokerage firm they already know and trust.

Your brokerage firm can use IntraFi’s One WaySM and receive fee income from the network banks that receive its deposits. Using One Way, your brokerage firm keeps the difference between IntraFi Network’s One-Way Sell® rate and the rate it has agreed to pay its customers. Your firm receives the net present value of the rate difference up front for funds placed in CDs and on a weekly basis for funds placed in MMDAs and DDAs. One-Way Sell rates are all-in rates; there are no transaction fees.

If your brokerage firm has an affiliated bank, instead of placing all customer funds with unaffiliated banks for fee income, your firm may forego earning fee income, in part or in whole, and place deposits with its affiliated bank. The affiliated bank can then use IntraFi Network Deposits reciprocal option to grow its balance sheet by exchanging funds on a dollar-for-dollar basis with other IntraFi network banks.
