Howard Bank's funds management services are designed for companies that keep a main bank account for operating services and use subaccounts for easier bookkeeping. For example, you may have a main account, then separate linked accounts for payroll, client funds and so on.

Our funds management services include:

  • Sweep services: You choose a target minimum balance you need in your main business account. At the end of each day, we’ll automatically sweep any extra funds into a high-interest savings or investment account of your choice.
  • Client escrow services: This solution is for professionals who oversee funds for customers. Our client escrow services include the ability to open main client accounts, as well as unlimited subaccounts with no minimum-balance requirements. We also offer automatic, year-end 1099-issuing services
  • Zero balance accounts (ZBAs): This type of account often is used for issuing payroll checks, holding petty cash and other special business needs. We automatically sweep remaining money out of your ZBA subaccounts at the end of the day. You choose the account(s) to which we move your extra funds.
