Here Is The Next Generation Of Deposit Account Tiering [Video]

Deposit Account Performance

You create deposit products to segment behavior and you use tiering to drive performance within that behavioral group. While this used to be taught at banking schools, it is largely glossed over these days.  Unfortunately, many banks get lazy and set their tiers based off the competition.

Bank Deposits

Because of tradition, we tier our deposit accounts according to size. Here at CenterState Bank, in our money market accounts for example, we have six tiers ranging from $2,000 up to $100,000. Currently, only the $100,000 and above tier pays a different rate of interest. The question that always comes up is do we have the right tiers and the right number of tiers? Further, are we paying the right rate on the tiers to elicit the deposit behavior we want? Let’s explore each question as the answers may change how you feel about deposit gathering.
