Settlement Services

Settlement services work in conjunction with a Federal Reserve tri-party agreement, image cash letter clearing or excess balance accounts. Your transactions are cleared through the FRB, then all debits and credits are automatically passed to your account at IBB for settlement, eliminating regulatory concerns such as the possibility of daylight overdrafts and penalties with your FRB account.

Balances are maintained and settled in your IBB account, then end-of-day balances above your designated target-balance are swept into a Fed Funds or Excess Balance Account.

  • Save time and effort with an automated sweep program, which also eliminates the need to have a clearing balance agreement with the Fed and streamlines the process to invest excess balances.
  • Minimize non-earning balances; funds on deposit are either invested overnight or generate earnings credit.
  • Take advantage of aggregate volume discounts on cash letter fees through IBB.
  • Track, monitor and manage all of your account activity, including transactions, balances and funds availability with BusinessNet (Powerlink).
  • Enjoy unsurpassed customer service, expertise and technical support.

Funds Management

IBB funds management services are tailored to increase profitability, save time and maintain proper Reg. F diversification.

Your account is reviewed daily to determine the amount of excess funds above the target-balance, in order to offset service fees. Excess funds are automatically swept into our Fed Funds program or your Excess Balance Account in increments of $1,000.

A Fed Funds line of credit can cover the shortage if your bank has inadequate funds to cover your settlement clearings and/or to meet your target-balance.  Either way, your bank's funds are always working at their maximum potential.
