As you may have guessed, it provides extra from other types of accounts. It is so because you can avail the facility of auto sweep. If you don’t know, it is a facility through which the surplus funds in your account are used to create fixed deposits.

Why Use Auto Sweep?

The next question in your mind is why you should use auto sweep? Worry not. Here are some reasons why:

  • Handle surplus funds hassle-free. It allows you to get more returns.
  • No manual intervention to create FDs
  • No problem regarding cheque bounce, as you can use the amount of FD in case of deficiency.
  • Feel the wonder of compounding due to auto-renewal of FD

Let’s leave the technical part for later. Here is an example to understand it (Xtra Gain Edge Account):

Suppose you have Rs 80k in your account. The amount exceeds the trigger limit(Rs 50k). So, the bank will transfer the surplus funds of Rs 40k (80k- 40k) that is, the amount over the minimum threshold limit in an FD on Monday.

Assume all is going well. You have Rs 48k in your Bank Account and Rs 40k in your FD. If you present a cheque of Rs 15k, the bank balance will fall below Rs 40k, i.e., the minimum balance. So, Yes Bank will liquidate the FD and transfer the funds to your current account.

Features

  • FD Reconciliation Statement for easy reconciliation and accounting
  • Weekly sweep out and sweep in facility for higher interest
  • Other Features of Edge Business and Prime Business Accounts
