1 Interest rate and annual percentage yield (APY) are based on each account balance enrolled in Brokered Liquid Deposit and will vary over time. Tiered rates apply to all Brokered Liquid Deposit balances, and clients who maintain higher balances may receive a higher yield.

2 Deposits to Brokered Liquid Deposit will be made to Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. Deposits (including principal and interest) are eligible for FDIC insurance up to $250,000 per depositor ($500,000 for joint accounts with two or more owners) in each insurable capacity. If your total deposits at Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., (including those placed directly at the bank, or through an intermediary such as Wells Fargo Advisors) exceed the applicable FDIC insurance limit for that ownership category, the excess deposits will not be insured. Clients are responsible for monitoring their deposits, including deposits held outside of Brokered Liquid Deposit, such as Wells Fargo Bank accounts or Bank Deposit Sweep, to determine if the deposits exceed the FDIC insurance coverage limits in the same ownership category.

3 Eligible account types include Non-Retirement and Non-Advisory Brokerage Accounts. Further restrictions may apply to initial deposit dollars. Talk to your financial advisor for more information.

4 Brokered Liquid Deposit is not a sweep option. Your cash balances will not automatically sweep from your brokerage account into your Brokered Liquid Deposit. Please review Brokered Liquid Deposit Disclosure.
