"Rollover" Account Services
 

☆ Introduction
"Rollover" Account Services refer to the service of effective cash and investment management by associating the customer's current savings deposit with low-risk funds such as the money market and short-term debts. On the one hand, the "Rollover" service realizes incremental value of idle funds by automatically utilizing customer's current savings accounts to subscribe for money market funds or short-term debt funds specified by the customer under expectations of higher income than the interest of current savings. On the other, when the customer's current savings account is in need of cash, "Rollover" account services can automatically redeem the funds to allow timely use of money, which provides convenient cash management for the customer.

☆ Functional Diagram
After opening a fund trading account and a TA account of Planned Fund Investment at ICBC, through the Fund Trading Card (local Elite Club Account Card or ICBC Money Link Card), customers can sign the "Rollover" Account Agreement to associate the Personal Settlement Account with the Fund Account to enable cash and investment management, as shown in the diagram below (direction of funds flow is indicated by arrows)


1. Customers can specify the settings of "Balance for Subscription" and "Balance for Redemption" of their "Rollover" accounts for determining the initiation of application for subscription and redemption. When the available balance in "Rollover" account is greater than the "Balance for Subscription", the excess amount will be transferred into the funds account for reservation and will be used to buy the specified funds on the next (working) day. When the available balance in "Rollover" account is lower than the "Balance for Redemption", application for redemption will be initiated, and the shares (counted at 1 Yuan of Fund Net Asset Value per unit) to redeem will make up to the "Balance for Subscription".
2. To realize higher yield from idle money in current savings accounts, customers can sign for the Agreement Transfer Account (up to four accounts) when entering for the "Rollover" Account. Customers can respectively set the "Minimum Balance Retainable" of Agreement Transfer Accounts 1 to 4. When balance in the agreement accounts is greater than the "Minimum Balance Retainable", the excess amount will be transferred into the "Rollover" account to trigger subscription.
3. The "Rollover" Account and Agreement Accounts 1 to 4 are all current savings accounts. A customer can designate any current accounts under his/her name to be a "Rollover" Account or Agreement Accounts.
For instance, main income accounts such as salary accounts can be set as the "Rollover" Account; main payment accounts such as housing loan, water and electricity as Agreement Account 1 and the daily expenditure account as Agreement Account 2.
Balance for Subscription and Balance for Redemption in the main income account can be set to RMB 2000 and RMB 1000 respectively. When the balance in the main income account is greater than RMB 2000, excess amount will be transferred to buy specified funds on the next (working) day. And the fund shares will be redeemed to make up the balance to RMB 2000, if the balance in the main income account falls lower than RMB 1000. If the customer sets the monthly payment for housing loan, water and electricity bill (RMB 2500, for example) as the minimum retainable balance for the main payment Account 1, the excess amount of the balance will be automatically transferred into the main income account. And if the customer sets the minimum retainable balance in the expenditure payment Account 2 as RMB 1000, the amount of balance exceeding RMB 1000 will be automatically transferred into the main income account.
