GREENWICH, CT, March 23, 2023 - Interactive Brokers (Nasdaq: IBKR), an automated global electronic broker, today announced that clients are expected to earn up to USD 4.33% on instantly available cash balances over USD 10,000. Unlike brokerages that offer significantly lower rates, Interactive Brokers conveniently pays interest directly to client brokerage accounts. This eliminates the need for separate sweeps accounts, funds or programs and enables cash to be instantly available.
While interest rates available at other brokerages are only USD 0.01% - 2.32%, the market interest paid by Interactive Brokers, is calculated using the Fed Funds rate as the reference rate for USD minus 0.5%. As a result, if interest rates continue to rise as expected, clients of Interactive Brokers will have the opportunity to earn more.
"In the current rising rate environment, many investors are considering how to earn more in their brokerage and savings accounts," said Thomas Peterffy, Founder and Chairman of Interactive Brokers. "Investors who allocate a portion of their portfolio to cash may benefit from Interactive Brokers' competitive interest rates, powerful trading platforms, and a broad range of low-cost and global products."
For clients of Interactive Brokers, interest accrues daily, and payments are posted on a monthly basis. Interactive Brokers' cash management is integrated into client broker accounts, making it simple to earn interest and borrow at the lowest rates without transferring cash.
