While the details of the agreement remain confidential, Reich & Tang will receive a perpetual, non-exclusive license to access the Island IP's intellectual property relating to its FDIC-insured sweep products, including the Demand Deposit Marketplace program." The release adds, "Reich & Tang offers the Demand Deposit Marketplace program which is an automated, daily cash sweep solution that enables investors to achieve millions of dollars in FDIC insurance while maintaining daily liquidity. The program automatically allocates investor deposits among several banks participating in the program, wherein the deposits never exceed the maximum FDIC coverage of $250,000 per bank per tax identification number or other unique identifier."
