Can DBS Cash Concentration support structures in different currencies?

Yes. However, each structure can only consist of accounts of the same currency.

Can we do this on a regional basis?

Yes, you can access our regional liquidity management capabilities, such as cross-border sweep and interest optimisation. However, they are subject to the regulations of each country/region.

Can DBS handle back-valued transactions under cash concentration?

No, we do not handle back-valued transactions under cash concentration.

Why are there surplus funds in my sub-account at the end of the day when it was meant to have a zero balance?

Funds on hold in the sub-account are not available for use, and therefore can not be swept up to the master account. An example is Lien, which are placed on hold until they are cleared.
