MaxMyInterest isn’t a bank, nor is it an investment vehicle. Max never takes custody of cash. Instead, Max simply helps link your existing checking or brokerage account to online savings accounts that offer a much higher yield, and then optimizes the allocation of cash among these accounts, automatically. Funds remain in your own bank accounts at all times, and all funds transfers are handled by the banks themselves.
You may be frustrated by the low rates offered on most savings accounts and other cash equivalents, such as CDs and money market funds. Max offers a compelling solution to enhance yield.
Benefits of Using Max
Not only does MaxMyInterest help clients earn a higher yield on cash, but Max also helps spread funds across multiple banks, to maximize FDIC insurance coverage. Highly compensated individuals with variable incomes – those who receive large bonuses or commissions, or who receive partnership distributions – tend to be good candidates for Max. In addition to earning higher yields and obtaining more FDIC coverage, they also benefit from Max’s automatic cash sweep feature. Clients can use Max with a set amount of funds or set a target checking account balance, and Max helps move excess funds to savings or replenishes checking accounts to this target level as part of its monthly optimization.
MaxMyInterest offers an advisor-centric way for clients to take advantage of high yields from online banks. Max gives clients a set-it-and-forget-it option that automatically reallocates their cash as rates change so that it’s always earning the highest yield.
Other clients may respond to how MaxMyInterest helps keep cash safe, via broader FDIC insurance coverage. The Max dashboard enables clients to view real-time balances at all of the banks they have linked to the Max platform. It also enables clients to transfer funds from checking to savings, or savings to checking with the click of a button. At tax time, you can receive an email with a password protected PDF that contains your 1099-INT statement for all linked accounts.
