Disclosures

  1. Accounts with a Net Asset Value (NAV) of USD 100,000 (or equivalent) or greater are paid interest at the full rate. Accounts with a NAV lower than USD 100,000 (or equivalent) receive interest payments at rates proportional to the account size, and no interest is paid on the first USD 10,000 of cash in the account. Please note that interest is earned on positive settled cash balances held in the securities segment of an account but not on cash held in the commodities segment of the account.

  • IBKR may change these rates at any time, in its sole discretion. We will publish the current rates on a best-efforts basis. Interest rates may also vary by program or arrangement. Restrictions apply. The published rates are for direct clients of IBKR. Clients introduced through another broker may receive a different amount of interest (or no interest) at the election of the client’s introducing broker. Clients should contact their introducing broker about the rates that will apply to their account.
