GREENWICH, CT, July 27, 2023 - Interactive Brokers (Nasdaq: IBKR), an automated global electronic broker, today announced that clients are expected to earn up to USD 4.83% on instantly available cash balances over USD 10,000. Interest is paid directly to client brokerage accounts making cash instantly available to trade or transact. Interactive Brokers’ Cash Management service makes it easy for clients to earn interest and borrow at competitive rates while managing their money from one account.

"Interactive Brokers offers a simple Cash Management solution so clients can oversee their finances from a single account," said Steve Sanders, EVP of Marketing and Product Development, at Interactive Brokers.
