CommSec has today announced the launch of an integrated cash management and online trading solution – the first of its kind in Australia. It will be available to clients from Sunday 8 June.

The new CommSec Cash Management Solution will enable self-directed investors to turn their everyday cash into an investment opportunity by managing their investments and their cash through one single online location.

Matt Comyn, Managing Director, CommSec said: "The Cash Management Solution forms part of CommSec’s strategy to expand its market leading online broking platform already servicing more than 1.5 million accounts."

According to Mr Comyn, CommSec’s new Cash Management Solution has been developed to help self-directed investors make money, save money and save time.

Some of the key features of CommSec’s Cash Management Solution include:

  • CommSec Cash Account
    • Everyday electronic transaction account with no monthly account fees
    • Full online transactional capabilities and interest paid on balances over $5,000*
    • Worldwide and online access to funds via the CommSec Debit MasterCard
  • CommSec Investment Account
    • High interest online savings account paying 7.5%** on every dollar
