A contract specialization that groups account contracts together in a hierarchy and portrays contract relationships using contract element "contract relationships". Applications in Account Management include, for example, cash concentration, in Master Contract Management, overdraft protection or combined settlement.

The master contract can have attributes and rules, but postings are only possible on the participant accounts, not on the master contract.
