Interest rates

Interest on the CMA is calculated using stepped interest rates, which means that account holders may be paid a different interest rate for different portions of their balance.

Product Balance portion Interest rate
CMA
Non-advised accounts
$0-4,999.99 0.00% pa
$5,000 + 0.00% pa
CMA
Advised accounts

CMA Accelerator
Advised accounts
$0-9,999,999.99 0.50% pa
$10,000,000 + 0.30% pa
     

Interest rates effective from 9 November 2020 and are subject to change. For the interest rates applicable to advised accounts, please contact your financial services professional or check your statement.

** Rate includes 0.25% pa adviser rebate and is available to advised accounts who opened accounts on or after 1 July 2014. If your account was opened before 1 July 2014, we recommend you check your statement or speak with your adviser for further information on your current interest rate.

For the interest rates that apply to cash accounts linked to wrap, please visit the wrap page.

Interest on cash accounts linked to wrap is calculated differently. However, clients who close their wrap account but decide to keep their CMA will, at that point, then be subject to the stepped interest rates listed above.

Frequently asked questions

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.

The information below applies to the following accounts:
 
  • Macquarie Cash Management Account (CMA)
  • Macquarie Investment Manager (Macquarie Cash Management Account)
  • Macquarie Investment Consolidator (Macquarie Consolidator Cash Account)
  • Macquarie Investment Manager II (Wrap Cash Account)
  • Macquarie Investment Consolidator II (Wrap Cash Account)
  • Macquarie Vision (Macquarie Vision Cash Account)
  • Macquarie Online Trading (Macquarie Cash Management Account) via the linked Macquarie Cash Management Account

You can make a payment into your cash account a number of ways:
 
  • EFT
  • BPAY
  • Direct debit
  • Cheque deposits

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

You can transfer funds into your account from your Macquarie account or from most other financial institutions by using their online banking services.

Our branch (BSB) number is 182-512*.

Please note:
 
  • Transfers from Macquarie accounts will generally reach your account on the same business banking day. This does not include super or pension accounts
  • Transfers from other financial institutions are normally made overnight and generally reach your account the following business banking day. This means a transfer made on a Friday will generally be deposited the following Monday. Transfers made after business hours, however, will take an additional day to reach your account. For example, a transfer made after business hours on a Monday will generally be deposited on Wednesday.

Where you have an SMSF which uses a Macquarie CMA or your SMSF is administered through a Macquarie Investment Consolidator account, we offer an electronic message service that allows your account to receive employer super contribution payments and related messages electronically. The electronic service address (ESA) is MACQUARIESMSF.

*Only for accounts listed at the start of the article. For BSBs relating to Macquarie Cash Management Trusts (CMTs) which were transitioned to Macquarie CMAs, please refer to the Product Information Statement or check your account online.
 
Internal funds transfer

To initiate a transfer between your Macquarie accounts, please see How do I make a payment from my bank account using funds transfer or BPAY?
 

Transfers via an overseas bank

You can transfer funds to your Macquarie CMA from overseas by:
 

  • bank draft drawn at an Australian bank, or by
  • telegraphic transfer in Australian dollars (AUD). Please instruct the sending bank to quote our SWIFT code: MACQAU2S XXX.

BPAY®
 
To send funds to your account via BPAY, contact the financial institution holding the funds, which must be a BPAY payer. Use the following details to make the transfer:
 
  • Biller code: 667022
  • Reference number: your cash account number

Please note BPAY deposits take two business days to clear.
 
Making direct debits
 
Direct debits are the easiest way to automate regular deposits into your account.

To set up a direct debit from an account you have with another financial institution, you can elect this on the online application at the time your account is opened and complete the Direct Debit Request form. If you have a SuperOptions super annuation account, use this form.

This form can also be used to facilitate a one-off direct debit.

You’ll need to provide a copy of a recent bank statement (that’s less than six months old) for the account you’re debiting which is used to verify the account details.

In circumstances where the account you are nominating for direct debits doesn’t issue statements, we will accept alternative documents that clearly reflect the account name and details, for example a Transaction Report or screenshot of the online bank statement.

Posting a cheque to us

You can deposit cheques at a Macquarie branch. All cheques must be made payable to:

Macquarie Investment Manager II (full account name)
eg Macquarie Investment Manager II / Macquarie Investment Consolidator II John Citizen

Cheques should be accompanied by either a new application form or a deposit slip (available online) and be sent to us. Cheques take approximately three business days to clear and must be cleared before your selected investments can be purchased. 

You can find cheque deposit slips here.

You can also deposit cheques at any participating National Australia Bank (NAB) branch. We will usually credit your Wrap Cash Account on the same business day, provided you lodge your deposit at the counter on that day. Interest on the deposit then accrues from that day. NAB does not accept cash deposits or third-party cheques on our behalf. Please do not use the Express Cheque Deposit facility at NAB branches.

1. Write the following depositing account details on the back of each cheque:
  • account name
  • account number
  • account BSB
  • a contact number (mobile or landline).

2. Post the cheque(s) to: 
   

Macquarie Bank Limited
GPO Box 4045 
Sydney NSW 2001
