Custody accounts

Essential

You usually need a custody account for investing. Once you have one, you can buy and manage investments like shares and bonds.

Secure

With a KBC Brussels Custody Account, investments in physical form (like certain foreign securities) are safe from loss or theft.

What is a custody account?

You usually need a custody account for investing. This is an account used for keeping investments in assets like shares, bonds, savings certificates and funds safe and managing them. You get a clear statement of all your investments at least once a year. It differs from current and savings accounts in that it can only be used for investments, not everyday transactions.

Opening a custody account

Drop by your KBC Brussels branch or contact KBC Brussels Live to open a custody account. You will need your ID card to do this.

Checking your custody account

Our KBC Brussels Invest app gives you an overview of your custody account.
