No, there is no requirement to make a deposit to open an account or hold a minimum deposit in your account. You will however need to make sure your monthly account fee is paid and that there is regular activity on the account, otherwise we will close your account.
Zenus Bank has comprehensive insurance policies via leading global insurers to keep the bank and clients’ deposits safe. We are not a member of the FDIC or the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
Zenus’ choice to operate as a full-reserve bank is critical in protecting your funds. We do not invest customer deposits. This means there is little to no risk, giving you peace of mind and reassurance that your money is not going safely in place.
All client deposits are held in top-tier financial institutions including the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. This has the added benefit of FDIC coverage applying to our correspondent accounts held at other institutions.
Zenus uses institutional bank rates for currency exchange. We charge a small mark up dependent on whether the transaction is made during or outside market hours. Please read our Charges and Fees page for the latest information.
