You usually need a custody account for investing. Once you have one, you can buy and manage investments like shares and bonds.
If you buy KBC Brussels securities, we don't charge you a custody fee. A standard fee applies to other securities.
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.
