Competitive Margin Rates

We use a blended rate based on the size of your balance. To calculate the blended rate, the first $100,000 is charged at the tier I rate, the next $900,000 at the tier II rate, etc. TC2000 Brokerage accrues interest on a daily basis and posts the actual interest monthly on the 3rd business day of the following month. The tiers which interest is based upon may change from time-to-time without prior notification to customers. Such adjustments are done periodically to adjust for changes in currency rates.

Tier Balance Interest Rate
Tier I $0 to $100,000 2.59%
Tier II $100,000.01 to $1,000,000 2.09%
Tier III $1,000,000.01 to $3,000,000 1.75%
Tier IV $3,000,000.01 to $200,000,000 1.75%
Tier V $200,000,000+ 1.75%
