Yes. As we cannot pay fractional cents, we require that Tellus Boost Accounts maintain a $200 minimum balance to accrue daily interest. $200 is also the minimum amount you can deposit into your Boost Account.
No. Tellus is not an FDIC-insured bank. To achieve higher yields, Tellus makes investments (loans) that are secured by real estate; for example, by providing mortgages to landlords who collect their tenants’ rents through the Tellus platform.
Also in accordance with our fraud prevention policies, only one bank account may be linked to your Boost Account.
Tellus generates revenues by issuing loans secured by real estate. Our borrowers are usually charged a higher interest rate than the rate that we pay to savers and investors. By charging interest on the loans we make, we are able to give savers and investors a generous return and still create a nice profit.
If the underlying asset is worth less than the remaining balance of the loan, we have private insurance that will make up for the difference, allowing users to recover all their funds while still getting paid interest throughout the process. Your cash is always secure.
We want the Tellus app to be a safe, enjoyable experience for everyone. This is why we have aging for ACH transfers, in accordance with our fraud prevention policies. This means all funds deposited through ACH transfers are subject to a 60-day aging requirement before withdrawal. However, we understand that this may be inconvenient for some. If that is the case, please know that funds deposited through wire transfer, WeChat Pay, and Alipay are not subject to aging requirements and may be withdrawn at any time.
There are no fees for opening or holding a Boost Account with Tellus - what you see is what you get!
