Personalized Banking and Credit
Complementing your U.S. Trust® relationship
Just as your wealth planning and investment needs demand insightful, sophisticated solutions, your banking and credit needs deserve the same level of expertise and attention. At U.S. Trust, we offer a wide array of banking and credit capabilities — and industryleading ATM, online and mobile access — all designed to integrate smoothly into your overall financial strategy and U.S. Trust relationship.
BANKING SOLUTIONS: CONVENIENCE AND FLEXIBILITY
Checking accounts — Core deposit accounts help you coordinate and monitor your individual and business cash flows. Choose from a variety of checking solutions and services to complement your need for access and convenience:
- Premium Tiered Interest Checking1 — Can help you meet your cash management objectives while earning a competitive rate. The higher your balance, the more you earn.2
- U.S. Trust debit card—A debit card with the Total Security Protection® package and optional Photo Security® feature available for an easy, secure way to make purchases.
- Direct deposit — Direct deposit of regular monthly income into your accounts adds convenience, accelerates the availability of cash and enhances security.
Savings accounts — We offer savings vehicles that are designed to pay competitive rates of interest on funds you have not committed to your investment portfolios. Solutions include certificates of deposit, which offer an attractive return for a certain term, and money market savings, which offer liquidity and a variable rate with higher rates paid for higher balance tiers.
Overdraft Protection — An optional service that links your Premium Tiered Interest Checking account to another Bank of America®account, such as a secondary checking account, savings account, credit card account or home equity line of credit where available, and automatically transfers available funds to cover your transaction amount.3
