Reduce idle balances and maintain greater control

Improve operating efficiency

Help maximize your investment potential and/or minimize borrowing costs by funding your account at the end of the day. ZBAs are completely automated, resulting in reduced administrative costs and significantly simplifying the transfer of funds between accounts. Movement of your cash occurs as the last transaction of the banking day.

A simple solution
  • Enhance your ability to manage liquidity centrally while improving control over your US dollar balances
  • Fund your U.S. accounts and move excess balances daily to a master account
  • Achieve better control over your cash position with more accurate funds forecasting
  • Optimize your funds to maximize returns, eliminating idle account balances
  • Reduce risk of overdraft
