Hello, I have a Wealthfront account for my personal investment which has done well, and now they offer a cash savings account at 2.57% APY with no fees.  I also have a Marcus at Goldman Sachs setup which is now at 2.15% APY, also for personal.

But I have a small business and have some cash sitting in the business account.  Would be nice to have it in a high yield savings or something otherwise to at least make a couple percent off of it.  Does something like this exist? Or what do other small business owners do with the business cash other than letting it sit?

Thanks.

Is there any better solution? What do most small businesses do?

Can your business have a brokerage account?  If that is possible I don't know about Wealthfront, but you should be able to open a Vanguard account and their money market is paying 2.25% last time I checked.

Does anybody hear think wealthfront worth it? I seen this video earlier https://youtu.be/x_d8vHNptX0
So this kid took out a cash out refinance and used wealthfront to hedge his loan while he was remodeling. Does this sound feasible?
