What are the terms and conditions for a refund of the transfer charges?

    • you can buy the security online on the Keytrade Bank website and
    • the value of the transferred line is at least EUR 500 (or the equivalent of EUR500 if the security is quoted in a different currency). The charges for transferring securities that cannot be bought online with Keytrade Bank (securities that can only be sold online or that are traded by telephone, for example) or for which the value of the transferred line is lower than EUR 500 (or the equivalent in a different currency) are not eligible for refund. If you want to know in advance which securities in your portfolio are eligible for a transfer charge refund, Contact our commercial service by phone on +32 2 679 92 00 or by e-mail at info@keytradebank.com.
  • The maximum refund for transfer charges is EUR 2,500 per calendar year per legal place of residence. The refund is paid into your Keytrade Bank trading account. If you perform several transfers within 12 months, the EUR 2,500 maximum applies to all transfers together.

Keytrade Bank reserves the right to change its terms and conditions.
