Cash Pooling is a mechanism that allows the concentration of funds within several sub-accounts into a single Top Account. The top account holds the overall net cash position. The balances of the designated sub-accounts are automatically transferred to the top account at the end of each day. Any number of sub-accounts can be linked to the top account.
