What types of Investment Sweeps might be right for me?

KeyBank does not provide investment advice. However, some things to consider when making your decision could include your investment policy, KeyBank’s financial strength, Federated Investors financial strength, underlying investment rating and prospectuses, FDIC coverage, etc.

Are all funds in the bank account available to be swept out?

No. Sweep calculations are based on Collected Balances. KeyBank sets a minimum target balance of $25,000 to remain in the bank account.

If the balance in my bank account is insufficient to cover debits presented for payment, will they be rejected?

Not necessarily. Key’s system automatically considers available funds in Sweep accounts when determining availability for posting debits.

Can my Sweep account receive transactions directly?

No. The only transactions into or out of Sweep accounts are through the Sweep mechanism.

Can I elect to receive my earnings in an account other than the investment account?


Do I need to maintain separate account opening documentation and signature cards for my investment account?

Aside from the Sweep Service Schedule, no additional documentation is required.

Does Key issue 1099s?

Key will send a 1099 if the annual interest paid is $10 or more. Repo and Automatic Investment Sweep earning are not considered interest and Key will not send a 1099.
