Banking Solutions for Specialized Business Operations

At First Bank and Trust Company, we aren't in the business of one-size-fits-all banking solutions for our commercial clients. We understand that the financial needs of a business are unique to their business-type and industry.

Interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts (IOLTA)

Law firms have a certain fiduciary responsibility to their clients. They must follow certain rules when handling, holding and using client funds. A trust account called an IOLTA, or Interest on Lawyer Trust Account, should be established to manage and separate these funds.

IOLTA guidelines can vary by state. It's beneficial to have an advisor with local expertise support your trust account to ensure compliance.

Features & Benefits:

  • Free account with no minimum balance
  • First Bank and Trust Company is authorized to provide IOTA accounts in Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina

CDARS and ICS

We help business step onto the path of a more secure and efficient financial future. One strategy we employ is offering business savings solutions that provide both security and returns. First Bank and Trust Company is a member of the IntraFi network which unlocks multi-million-dollar FDIC insurance for our commercial clients through demand deposit accounts or money market deposit accounts, called CDARS and ICS.

CDARS: Financial Security Simplified

CDARS, or Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service, is an account that maximizes your FDIC insurance coverage on substantial deposits. Your funds are spread across the extensive InfraFi network, allowing you to access up to $50 million in coverage while working directly with just our bank.

 

 

ICS: Effortless Cash Management and Growth

ICS, or IntraFi Cash Service, provides full FDIC insurance coverage on funds up to $100 million on one account. Your excess cash goes into an interest-bearing account and these funds are automatically allocated to a network of participating banks. However, you still maintain access to your money and have the convenience of working directly with just our bank.
