 What's New

Cash Sweep:
A Cost of Doing Business or a Fuduciary Breach?
Tuesday, December 3, 2019
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
As interest rates creep lower, banks, custodians and money managers are finding creative ways to generate revenue. Though it’s not a new practice, many are forcing cash into sweep bank accounts and paying a lower rate of return than offered by comparable money markets. A recent study pointed out that the average RIA held about 10% in cash on their book at any given time. If that cash is earning significantly less than it could be earning in a money market fund, what are the implications for your practice? Are there other options? Are they worth the time, effort and expense to execute them?
Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss the background of the industry practice of sweep account skimming
  • Identify several approaches that different firms in the industry are taking to counteract this practice
  • Talk about the long term implications of this practice and possible regulatory intervention scenarios
