Who is eligible to receive interest compensation at BUX?
If you are a BUX user and have completed KYC, you can earn interest compensation on your uninvested cash. Your account with BUX must be active at the time interest is paid. If you close your BUX account, you won’t get interest compensation for that quarter.
How is my interest compensation calculated?
Wondering how we calculate your interest compensation? We check your daily cash balance once a day, including on weekends and holidays. To find your daily interest, we multiply your balance by the interest rate and divide it by 365. If your balance is zero or negative at the time of the check, we treat it as €0 for that day. Then, we add up all your daily interest values for the calendar quarter to get your total quarterly compensation. Keep in mind if you have more than €25,000 on any particular day, only €25,000 of your balance will for that day’s interest calculation.
When do I receive my interest compensation?
Interest compensation is added to your cash balance on a quarterly basis. We aim to do this within the first three weeks following each calendar quarter. For example, interest compensation for Q1 is usually paid in the first three weeks of April, interest compensation for Q2 is paid in the first three weeks of July, and so on.
