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

Checking your custody account

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

Investing for children

KBC Tall Trees Custody Account

If you'd like to invest for your children or other loved ones, a KBC Tall Trees Custody Account is the one to open for them. You do this the same way as for our standard custody account at your KBC Bank branch.

  • You choose for whom you're investing and what to do with your investments on the account
  • You stay in control of the assets until they are released and specify for whom, how much and in which securities you invest
  • You always have the option of transferring the securities to the beneficiary or cancelling the third-party beneficiary clause
