More value for families

When accounts are linked for family terms, the Elevate portfolio charge is based on the combined value of the linked accounts, which may reduce platform charges. We can link up to 10 accounts.

For more information on family terms, including terms and conditions, please see our Understanding family/couples discount guide.

Please note: linking family accounts isn't done automatically by the platform.

More about interest rates and Elevate’s cash management administration charge

For the various cash accounts held within your client’s Elevate account, we apply a cash management administration charge (CMAC).

The charge represents the difference between the total interest we receive from the bank(s) used to provide these accounts and any interest payable to your client. We keep the margin (charges). Interest rates vary depending on the interest received from the bank(s) and may go up and down regularly.

To find out more, take a look at our Elevate cash interest rates.
