Investopedia explains 'Account Aggregation'


Account aggregation may also include credit card accounts that are issued by the institution where the linked accounts are held or which are tied in some way to a particular account. Account aggregation usually only occurs within a single institution, although certain assets held outside a financial institution may be linked if there is a prearranged procedure for doing so.

Aggregating accounts can be particularly useful for families who have multiple financial goals, since the statements give a complete picture of the family's financial assets.
