What clients think about our Investor Checking account:

High Yield Investor Checking is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 609.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ease I've enjoyed the ease in which to do my online banking. Have had no issues of interference (as I've had with other checking accounts through other institutions). I would like to make one suggestion: When using the BillPay it would be very helpful to have a section "memo" in order to keep a record of each payment - according to expenditures.. I appreciate all the features of the account, such as no monthly service fees, BillPay, ease in the on-line process, etc. While doing wire transfers the security was quite high which can be a really good feature. For me, working with smaller amounts of cash, I felt it a bit too much but still appreciated the cautionary measures .
