Raymond James Bank Deposit Program
Raymond James offers a multibank sweep program that:
- Provides Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insurance coverage
- Offers competitive interest rates.
With this program, available cash in your brokerage account is deposited into interest-bearing deposit accounts at one or more banks, as described in the "Bank Priority Lists" section below.
For accounts that elect the Raymond James Bank deposit program (RJBDP), and for all custodial retirement accounts, excess funds will be directed to a designated "excess bank" without limit and without regard to maximum-available FDIC coverage.
To maximize insurance coverage, eligible clients can choose the Raymond James Bank deposit program with Client Interest Program (RJBDP with CIP) to provide additional insurance coverage on cash balances that exceed available FDIC coverage. Excess cash from the bank deposit program will be directed to CIP, providing Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) and excess SIPC coverage.
Interest rates will remain the same between the bank deposit program and CIP, and as always, funds are immediately available for withdrawal or reinvestment.

* As with all banks in RJBDP, any participating foreign-owned banks are fully FDIC-insured with U.S. branches and charters; they are governed and operate under the same laws and regulations as all U.S. banks. For privacy and security reasons, all deposits through RJBDP are made with U.S. branches through an omnibus account so your personal information is not shared with the participating banks.
Clients whose brokerage accounts are not serviced through an advisor at an affiliated bank should refer to the regional priority lists.
(See “How the priority lists work” for information on how funds flow between banks.)
The following banks are “excess banks,” as described in the “Bank Priority List” section of the disclosures:

How the priority lists work
Raymond James establishes contracts with multiple banks, which are included in one or more bank priority lists. Your account’s legal address of record determines which list is used to determine the order in which your available cash in your brokerage account will be deposited into interest-bearing deposit accounts at one or more of the banks set forth on the predetermined list.
If your cash balance exceeds the FDIC insurance limit for all funds at the first bank on the list, the excess cash will be deposited in the next bank. If you still have excess cash, those funds will be deposited in the third bank Raymond James has designated. This process continues through all banks on the priority list, providing FDIC coverage up to $3 million, or $6 million for joint accounts. As always, you have immediate access to your funds should you wish to withdraw or reinvest them.
Your priority list may also include one or more excess banks that will accept funds from retirement accounts without limit and without regard to the maximum applicable deposit insurance amount if all banks on the priority list have received funds up to the applicable deposit limit. If all your funds are withdrawn from an excess bank, the next time your funds are available for deposit in an excess bank they may be deposited in a different excess bank. This may also apply to certain non-retirement accounts that do not elect to have excess funds swept to the Raymond James Client Interest Program, as described below.
For non-retirement accounts, if all banks on the priority list have received your funds up to the applicable deposit limit, your next available funds will be deposited in the Raymond James Client Interest Program (and covered by SIPC/Excess SIPC insurance), as long as you have not opted for an alternative.
The deposit insurance coverage limits refer to the total of all deposits that an account holder has in the same ownership categories at each FDIC-insured institution. Visit fdic.gov for more information.
