Introducing Target Yield Accounts

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve partnered with YieldX to reimagine high yield savings. Introducing the Rize Target Yield Account: a high yield account backed by fiat currency. Powered by our Synthetic Accounts, this hybrid account program provides fintechs, brands and banks with risk-optimized high yield and same-day liquidity.

“We’re proud to present a target yield account that is truly the first of its kind, aiming to reduce risk for end customers while striving to generate healthy returns,” said CEO and Co-Founder of Rize, Justin Howell. “The modern banking client has been waiting for a product like this, and with the help of YieldX, and its innovative income investing technology, we’re able to strengthen the offerings of our existing and new fintech clientele to revolutionize the way the world looks at income investing.”

Meet Rize’s Target Yield Accounts:

  • Choose yield targets from 1% — 8%

With Rize’s new TYA, you get the best of both banking and brokerage. Accounts can be launched and scaled quickly via a single API. The Rize TYA allows for multi-product architecture designed to integrate with a company’s existing offering, along with embedded compliance tools to help clients manage regulatory requirements. Rize offers a one-stop shop for everything fintech builders need to establish new financial products.

Why high-yield?

Interest rates are at near all-time lows. As a result, Fintechs are struggling to provide meaningful returns for customers. The fintech market is currently dominated by legacy account types with extremely high customer acquisition costs and few competitive advantages. Some high-yield options on the market are expensive, risky, and limited in scope, with many options backed by inherently volatile cryptocurrencies. Rize empowers fintechs to offer a turnkey target yield account without the challenge of complexity, time intensiveness, and expense of developing the infrastructure internally.

The Rize TYA provides existing and new clients with the ability to offer highly effective target yield accounts. Through its partnership with YieldX Advisers, LLC i an SEC-registered investment advisor, Rize unlocks the potential to achieve attractive yields through highly-liquid fixed-income investments.

“This offering is critical as traditional high yield savings accounts currently offer negative returns relative to inflation, leading to poor client experiences,” said Adam Green, CEO and CoFounder of YieldX. “Partnering with Rize to leverage our API suite empowers forward-thinking fintechs and financial institutions to provide their customers with personalized, on-demand products like this built around targeted yield.”

How is this possible?

The Rize Target Yield Account is made of a set of APIs that deliver a fully managed portfolio of fixed income securities to Rize’s consumer-facing fintech clients. Rize’s proprietary synthetic core allows fintech companies to move money seamlessly across account types, so TYA funds can be liquidated same-day, and integrate financial capabilities across checking, savings, and brokerage custodial accounts.

The YieldX algorithms allocate to a diversified basket of liquid fixed-income ETFs whilst optimizing for the lowest risk and cost to the end investor (where risk is defined as annualized volatility and cost is defined as the expense ratio). YieldX curates a list of highly liquid funds from which to optimize and regularly reviews the constituents to ensure the funds are aligned with yield-targeted investing.ii
