We believe having a Cash Management Account with us should help you make money, not cost money. That’s why the Accelerator Cash Account has no account opening fees and no account keeping fees.

Your clients will also benefit from unlimited electronic and assisted transactions. After all, no regular fees means more money to invest.

Of course there are certain things like overseas transactions and bank cheques that we do charge a small fee for but the good news is, you only pay for these services when you need them.
