Can DBS support Cash Concentration structures in different currencies?

Yes, we can support structures in different currencies. However, each structure can only consist of accounts of the same currency. 

Can I sweep funds from other banks to my DBS account?

Yes, we have the ability to pool in funds from other banks, from anywhere in the world, as long as the third-party bank participates in the SWIFT network. 

What’s the difference between Notional Pooling and Cash Concentration?

Cash Concentration involves physical movement of funds into a concentration account, thus, it creates inter-company loans, as money belongs to a different entity. There is no physical movement of funds for Notional Pooling, because account balances are notionally set-off. 

Can we do this on a regional basis?

Yes, you can access our regional liquidity management capabilities, such as cross-border sweep and interest optimisation. However, they are subject to the regulations of each country/region. 

Why are there surplus funds in my sub account at the end of the day when it was meant to have a zero balance?

Funds on hold in the sub-account are not available for use, and therefore can’t be swept up to the master account. Common examples include AutoCollect transactions and cheque deposits, which are placed on hold until they are cleared the next business day.
