The leader in online trading in Belgium for 21 years, Keytrade Bank offers a wide range of financial products and services. These are tailored for all those who wish to manage their finances by themselves, both transparently and simply.
In 1998, Belgium's first online investment site was born under the name VMS-Keytrade. Immediately successful, it saw dazzling growth.
In 2002, VMS-Keytrade became Keytrade Bank and acquired its banking status by taking over RealBank.
In 2005, Keytrade Bank was acquired by Groupe Crelan (formerly Crédit Agricole) and became a 100% subsidiary. Keytrade Bank has been part of the Belgian cooperative group Crelan. Today, and this since June 2016, Keytrade Bank is part of the Crédit Mutuel Arkéa Group.
Since its launch, Keytrade Bank has enjoyed constant growth. It has successfully and smoothly come through the financial crisis, thus underlining the resilience of its business model. Its business model focuses on successfully combining the profitability of customers-investors with the bank's own profitability.
