Investment Sweep

An Investment Sweep Account from Minnwest can invest excess funds in your checking account automatically or move funds back into your checking account as necessary without any manual transfer between accounts. Your business earns additional income without sacrificing liquidity

How Does It Work?

Transfer Funds Automatically to Maximize EarningsInvestment-Sweep-Graphic

Minnwest will work with you to determine a target balance in your checking account to cover daily activity and offset typical bank service charges through the Account Analysis. At the close of each business day when all transactions are accounted for, collected balances in excess of the 'target' balance are swept into an internal Minnwest interest-bearing account or an external investment account. As your cash needs require, funds are swept from the investment account back to the checking account automatically by Minnwest.
