1 A Relationship Premium is a bonus interest rate on qualifying Choice Money Market Savings accounts for selected balance tiers. The standard interest rate plus the Relationship Premium interest rate equals the Relationship Interest Rate. The Relationship Premium interest rate is set at the Bank's discretion and is subject to change without notice. There may not be a Relationship Premium associated with every balance tier.

2 To automatically qualify for a Relationship Interest Rate, you must have an open Bank of the West consumer checking account and a Choice Money Market Savings account. The Relationship Interest Rate will be earned on your Choice Money Market Savings account, and is calculated as follows: On the last day of your statement cycle, your Choice Money Market Savings account's end of day balance tier will be determined. If the Bank is paying a Relationship Premium for that balance tier, that Relationship Premium will be added to the standard interest rate for the balance tier into which your daily end of day balance falls each day during the next full statement cycle. Once set, the Relationship Premium will not change during that statement cycle. The standard interest rate can change as frequently as daily. The Relationship Interest Rate is compounded daily and paid to your Choice Money Market Savings account on the last day of the statement cycle. If you do not qualify for a Relationship Premium as of the last day of any statement cycle, your account will earn only the standard interest rate during the next full statement cycle.
