This lesson will tour a variety of cash products for your clients, such as the IBKR Debit Card program, Fixed Income investment products and PortfolioAnalyst tool which lets your clients link their investment, banking, checking, incentive plan and credit card accounts into a complete portfolio view to calculate returns, understand risks and measure performance against common or custom benchmarks.
Cash Products – Debit Card, Direct Deposit & Bill Pay
Interactive Brokers offers its Advisors a variety of Cash Products for their clients, using its debit card program.
Using the Debit Card program, clients can set up recurring payments, which lets clients pay bills without the hassle of writing checks or paying for postage, eliminates paperwork and facilitates the consistent execution of recurring payments.
Advisors on the IBKR platform can request debit cards be sent to their clients. Whereby they can authorize transactions, pre-authorize large purchases and lock or unlock their card right from their phone with IBKR Mobile’s two-factor security authentication.
Direct deposit lets clients automatically deposit paychecks, pension and social security payments to their non-retirement IBKR account.
Advisors can trade corporate, municipal, or Treasury bills, notes and bonds all from a single account and single trading screen.
Unlike traditional bond platforms, our clients can both see and place bid and offer quotes for US corporate bonds. Non-marketable limit orders that meet or exceed the existing best quote will be included in IBKR market data for other IBKR clients to view and consider trading against.
Users may scan for certificates of deposit, corporate, municipal and Treasury bond markets on any criteria from bond ratings and coupon rate to a specified convexity range or equity cap using the Global Bond scanner.
We route orders to additional liquidity providers including several major global banks. Bond orders are SmartRouted to multiple bond market centers.
And Fixed income assets may be included in Model Portfolios.
IBKR’s PortfolioAnalyst reporting tool lets your clients link their investment, banking, checking, incentive plan and credit card accounts into a complete portfolio view to calculate returns, understand risks and measure performance against common or custom benchmarks.

- Oversee your client accounts
