Reich & Tang (R&T) is proud to partner with Metropolitan Commercial Bank (MCB), whose Ultra Insured Account offering provides FDIC insured deposit solutions to school districts and other municipal funds.

MCB’s Ultra Insured Account helps school districts and other municipal funds earn more interest income and receive extended FDIC insurance coverage on their entire deposit. There are approximately $80-100 million in MCB’s municipal deposit program today. This continues to grow as more school business officials and public fund managers are interested in learning about the extended FDIC insurance and additional interest income, which could be used for staffing, infrastructure, supplies and technology.

MCB developed its Ultra Insured Account program specifically to meet clients’ cash management and deposit needs. As part of that process, MCB needed a fintech partner and deposit solutions specialist with superior industry expertise, a reliable platform and flexibility.

"We are thrilled to offer this innovative, flexible and insured deposit solution to our municipal clients," explained Laura Capra, SVP, and Head of Retail Banking at Metropolitan Commercial Bank. "We understand the importance of protecting and growing municipal funds so they can be used to provide vital services and build strong communities that will continue to prosper for many generations."

R&T’s Demand Deposit MarketplaceSM (DDM) is an automated, daily cash sweep service, which allows MCB to provide both FDIC insurance and interest income to community institutions with large deposits often underserved by larger banks.

"Reich & Tang has a long history of working with Metropolitan Commercial Bank, who is dedicated to giving back to the community they serve," said Joe Jerkovich, Reich & Tang EVP+COO. "We’re thrilled that our flexible and high-tech platform helps MCB provide their clients with better cash management options."
