Yield Solutions

Be bold, venture wisely. It’s a phrase spoken often at Bridge Bank, and it’s particularly relevant when it comes to Yield Solutions. You’re looking for tools that provide the best yield for excess corporate cash. Yet we’re well aware that simply looking for the highest yield isn’t necessarily the wisest solution.

By working with you in a collaborative effort, your advisor will develop an effective plan to optimize yield while balancing your objective for safety and liquidity. Among the tools we use to do that are:

  • Bridge Bank Money Market Account1
  • Bridge Bank Certificates of Deposits
  • Multi-tier sweep accounting2
  • Investment services for excess cash3

Because business and economic environments are dynamic, periodic reviews are critical to maintaining effective and appropriate investment solutions. After implementing an initial excess cash strategy, your Treasury Management Advisor will meet with you periodically to make appropriate adjustments.

1. Withdrawal transaction limits apply. Refer to disclosures provided at account opening and the Schedule of Fees and Charges for additional information.

2. Each deposit account is eligible to deposit up to $250,000, or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) standard maximum deposit insurance amount (SMDIA), for each category of legal ownership per participating bank, as managed by a 3rd party program administrator. The total amount of FDIC insurance available for each deposit account is calculated by multiplying the SMDIA by the number of participating banks in the Program. There are currently more than 100 participating banks supporting the ability to offer a total amount of insurance of $25 million for sole owner accounts. If the balance in your account is greater than the FDIC insurance coverage in the program, any excess funds will not be insured, including balances you may hold directly or through other intermediaries including broker-dealers. To assure your FDIC coverage, please regularly review banks in which your funds have been deposited, and notify your bank immediately if you do not want to allocate funds to a particular bank or banks. See Program Terms and Conditions for additional information. This represents the current SMDIA for a deposit account owned by one person. Please visit www.fdic.gov for additional information on how deposit accounts are insured by the FDIC.

3. NOT FDIC Insured. NOT Bank Guaranteed. MAY Lose Value.
