Savings account for a child

Give your child a financial boost with a savings account

Interested in saving for your child, grandchild or godchild, but still want to decide what happens to the money that's saved? Our KBC Start2Save4 and KBC Tall Oaks Savings Account give you the flexibility you're looking for. 

  • Keep control of your savings
  • Transfer the savings when you want
  • Choose from two types of account

The KBC Start2Save4 and KBC Tall Oaks Savings Account are regulated savings accounts with third-party beneficiary clause that are offered by KBC Bank, Belgium. Both accounts are fixed-term products and are governed by the laws of Belgium. A KBC Start2Save4 is held in the name of one private individual and only one may be opened per beneficiary. You can only save on a KBC Start2Save4 through a single monthly automatic savings order in a fixed amount of no more than 500 euros. A KBC Tall Oaks Savings Account may be opened in the name of one or more individuals. 

Your choice of savings account

The savings account you choose depends on how you want to save and the return you're looking for.

  • Want to save a fixed amount each month at a higher rate of return?
  • Prefer to put a large sum aside in one go?
  • Rather add smaller amounts from time to time?

Compare accounts to decide which one's best for you. The interest rates provided are gross and annualised and can change at any time. Withholding tax is charged at 15%. Current rates are always given here or can be obtained from your KBC Bank branch. If rates change, we will inform account holders of this on their statements of account.
