Can DBS support Cash Concentration structures in different currencies?

Yes, we can support structures in different currencies. However, each structure can only consist of accounts of the same currency. 

What’s the difference between Notional Pooling and Cash Concentration?

Cash Concentration involves the physical movement of funds into a concentration account. There is no physical movement of funds for Notional Pooling, because account balances are notionally set-off. However, Cash Concentration creates inter-company loans, because there's physical movement of funds between accounts belonging to different companies. 

Can we do this on a regional basis?

Yes, we have regional liquidity management capabilities such as cross-border sweep and interest optimisation. However, the availability of liquidity management capabilities is subject to regulations in each country. 

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't be swept up to the master account. Common examples include GIRO collection transactions and cheque deposits, which are placed on hold until they are cleared the next business day.
