Sweep Current Account is a great way to let your excess money work for you! Whenever your Sweep Current Account balance crosses the AED 50,000 mark, the excess funds (in units of AED 1,000) are automatically transferred (or swept out) into a deposit account.

An interest of 0.25% per annum is paid out to you monthly on this deposit.

When the balance in your Sweep Current Account falls below AED 50,000, the excess funds in the deposit account are automatically transferred (or swept back in) into your Sweep Current Account to bring the balance back up to AED 50,000. The amount remaining in the deposit account(s) continues to earn interest.
