Cash Management Account® (CMA® account)

I like the flexibility of having access to cash management services through my investment account.

With the Cash Management Account® (CMA® account) from Merrill, you can manage your long-term investments and day-to-day finances. Take care of everyday transactions with check writing, a Visa® deferred debit card and Bill Pay services, while helping to keep your long-term investments on track with access to a broad range of investment products and services — all in a single account.

Things to consider:

  • Do you value the convenience of paying a bill or writing a check directly from your investment account for occasional larger than normal purchases such as college tuition?
  • Would you like for your cash portfolio to work harder for you though automatic investing into a bank deposit program?
  • Do you want the ability to automatically reinvest cash dividends?
