What depositors are saying.

ICS came in and its been amazing. And we’re getting more money out of the sweep than money markets originally. Sweep makes so much sense. We cut checks once a week. We don't have to think about it [managing the process]. It has helped to solidify our relationship with our bank. Also I have been with lots of banks here [at my chosen local bank] I can get someone on the phone at any time. Don’t have to have to talk to 18 different people. I can get one person. And when I get someone on the phone, they're there.

Upon joining the county treasurer’s office, I was intrigued to learn that a portion of the county’s funds were placed through CDARS. I quickly appreciated the security and ease of placing large deposits through a single bank while keeping the money FDIC insured, and have since added the ICS serivce as well. CDARS and ICS free up the capital of smaller banks to finance community growth while still allowing them to accept our larger deposits. We can support the prosperity of the community while investing the taxpayers’ money competitively and safety through a community bank. A winning combination.

[1] When deposited funds are exchanged on a dollar-for-dollar basis with other banks in IntraFi's network of financial institutions, your bank can use the full amount of a deposit placed through ICS and CDARS for local lending, satisfying some depositors’ local investment goals or mandates.

Deposit placement through IntraFi’s deposit placement services is subject to the terms, conditions, and disclosures in the program agreements. Limits apply and customer eligibility criteria may apply. ICS program withdrawals may be limited to six per month for money market deposit accounts. Deposits are placed at destination institutions in amounts that do not exceed the FDIC standard maximum deposit insurance amount (“SMDIA”) at any one destination institution. Using multiple destination institutions provides access to aggregate insurance amounts across institutions that are multiples of the SMDIA. Although deposits are placed at destination institutions in amounts that do not exceed the SMDIA at any one destination institution, a depositor’s balances at the relationship institution that places the deposits may exceed the SMDIA (e.g., before settlement for a deposit or after settlement for a withdrawal) or be ineligible for FDIC insurance (if the relationship institution is not an insured depository institution). The depositor is responsible for making any necessary arrangements to protect such balances consistent with applicable law. If the depositor is subject to restrictions on deposits of its funds, the depositor is responsible for determining whether deposit placement through IntraFi’s services satisfies those restrictions. A list identifying IntraFi network banks may be found at https://www.intrafi.com/network-banks. The depositor may exclude particular insured depository institutions from eligibility to receive the depositor’s funds.
