How does AngelList’s sweep account program work?
A core Networked Banking feature is a sweep account program created in partnership with multiple banks. Sweep accounts provide a way to automatically spread deposits across a network of banks, providing up to $250K additional FDIC insurance at each bank.
AngelList’s banking partners work with companies to distribute deposits across a network of banks, including PNC and Capital One. These programs automatically create new accounts in your fund’s name at each partner bank. Because each account is entitled to up to $250K in FDIC insurance coverage, deposits made through AngelList’s Networked Banking can receive additional FDIC coverage.

Deposits in a sweep account program are liquid and are generally available within one day.
FDIC insurance will protect your deposits at that bank up to the $250K limit. The failure of one bank in the network will not impact your deposits or FDIC coverage at any other bank. If any bank in the sweep account program fails, you may experience a short delay in accessing deposits held at that particular bank due to FDIC procedures, but your deposits at other banks will be unaffected.
There is no fee to use Networked Banking. If you have at least $1M in deposits across accounts at the end of the previous day, you will have up to 10 free wires the next day. Otherwise, wire fees will be passed through to you at cost
