Bank Deposit Sweep Program

Cash Liquidity with the Peace of Mind of FDIC Insurance

The City National Bank Deposit Sweep Program (Program) provides clients with the ability to improve their cash liquidity management capabilities, obtain FDIC insurance coverage across Program Banks – subject to applicable FDIC limits – and earn a competitive rate of return on deposits.

When clients participate in the Program, their cash balances in excess of their Target Balance (determined by the client; minimum $25,000) will be swept to participating Program Bank(s), including City National Bank, that are members of the FDIC.

City National Bank maximizes clients’ eligibility for FDIC insurance by systematically allocating cash across multiple Program Banks ($246,500 per Program Bank for single ownership accounts and $493,000 for multi-party ownership accounts).*

The “Total Program Maximum Deposit Amount” is the aggregate amount of funds that may be swept into Program Deposit Accounts at the Program Banks:

  • $5,000,000 for single ownership accounts
  • $10,000,000 for multi-party accounts

Clients who have deposits in excess of the Total Program Maximum Deposit Amount will have those funds automatically swept into the City National Rochdale (CNR) Government Money Market Fund (Class S). Funds swept to the CNR fund are not FDIC insured and are not guaranteed by SIPC.

For FDIC coverage, the client is responsible for monitoring the total amount and insurable capacity of deposits placed both into and outside of the Program that the client has at each Program Bank, for the purpose of determining the FDIC insurance coverage for the client's deposits.
