Built-in sweep technology

Sweep technology helps ensure you have the money you need on hand 24/7 in your transaction account, while the rest works hard in your savings account earning interest.

How? The Sweep automatically moves money between your linked transaction and savings accounts each night, based on the limits you set, without you having to lift a finger.

Then if, for some reason, you need to spend a bit more, depending on the type of transaction, Sweep will also automatically move money from your savings in real time, so you won’t be declined or overdrawn.

Sweep info

SWEEP TO

If your transaction account exceeds the maximum limit, we'll automatically sweep that extra money into your savings account so it can earn interest.

SWEEP FROM

If your transaction account dips below the minimum limit, and assuming there’s enough money in your linked savings account, we’ll automatically sweep some money from your savings account to top up your transaction account, ready for the day ahead.
