What Is a D Account?
A D account is a fixed income sub account, which you can open with Freedom Finance Europe Ltd. With a D account, you get 3% per annum in USD, on a daily basis.
Where Does This Income Come from?
Every business day, clients' funds from D-accounts are invested in accordance with client's instructions via currency swap transactions, which yields this fixed income of 3% per annum (subject to rounding).
The interest rate may be changed by the company at any time.
What Is a Currency Swap?
A currency swap is basically two currency exchange transactions, one is selling USD for EUR, with a settlement date on the swap opening day, and the other is buying USD for EUR, with a T+1 settlement date. The profit gained with the second transaction is the income you get on your D account.
D Account Limitations
You cannot trade with your D account, it is only for keeping money.
If you need to apply for an IPO or make your trade, you need to transfer funds from your D account to your trading account; this is done in the matter of a few clicks, and the funds appear on your trading account instantly. You can transfer your funds at any time without waiting for the swap transaction to close.
