Introducing Interest on Idle Funds

Welcome to 2024, a pivotal year for Percent and our community of accredited investors. We’re thrilled to announce the single most requested feature to Percent: interest earnings on idle funds in your Percent account – a step that continues to elevate your investing experience.

Ready, Set, Earn!

Imagine having your funds primed for quick action while they steadily grow – that’s what enhanced cash readiness is all about. Beginning February 1, 2024, idle funds in your Percent account are not just sitting; they are actively earning a competitive interest rate. This means your money is always ready to be deployed into promising deals without missing out on potential growth.

Leading the Charge in Interest Rates

In today’s financial landscape, a 2.5% interest rate on accessible idle funds is not just good; it’s exceptional. It stands at a staggering 35x the national average for interest checking accounts and 5.3x the national average for savings accounts. For money market accounts, we’re talking about a 3.8x higher rate. This competitive edge positions your Percent account as your continued partner for financial growth. 

Interest on your Percent account’s cash balance is calculated using the simple interest formula, ensuring clarity and transparency in every aspect of your earnings.
