Learn how to customize your sweep accounts

The Vantage AMA offers three flexible sweep options: Automated Sweep, Automated Zero Balance Sweep and Self-Directed Sweep.

1. Choose how your sweep works

You have three flexible options for “sweeping” funds back and forth:

  • Automated Sweep – You designate a minimum and maximum amount of cash to remain in your checking account. Funds will automatically flow back and forth from your brokerage account to your checking account to maintain those designated levels.
  • Automated Zero Balance Sweep – All available cash in your checking account will automatically flow into your brokerage account each night. Funds flow back as needed to cover checks, debit card purchases and other withdrawals.
  • Self-Directed Sweep – You determine when to transfer cash between your checking account and your brokerage account.

2. Choose where to maintain your short-term sweep funds

Based on your instructions, available cash will flow from your checking account into taxable or tax-free options, including one with the security and protection of FDIC insurance.

3. Choose how to sweep funds with longer-term investments

When a security is sold, or interest or dividends are credited to your account, the proceeds can be automatically invested into the sweep option of your choice. Additionally, the purchase of a security can be covered automatically with funds from the chosen sweep option.
