The Macquarie Cash Management Accelerator Account (Accelerator) is a high interest savings deposit account that links to your Macquarie Cash Management Account (CMA). You can earn more on your cash funds while waiting for investment opportunities or simply get a higher return on your savings. The Accelerator offers you the convenience of having your investment cash hub and your surplus investment cash account in one place.

Accelerator benefits

  • Higher interest rates
  • No fees
  • No minimum or maximum balances
  • Real-time transfers to and from your linked CMA during a business day
  • Covered by the Government Guarantee under the Financial Claims Scheme.


Most investors use an Accelerator Account as a place to keep their excess investment cash due to a higher interest rate than the standard CMA. Please note that interest rates are variable and subject to change. You can view the current Accelerator interest rates here.

Speak to your adviser if you’re interested in opening an Accelerator Account. They’ll need to complete the application for you, that you can approve online, in the same way as a CMA application. You can’t open an Accelerator Account directly.
