Over 25 years of experience in the fund business

From an internal settlement unit to the leading fund platform in Germany - Always a stable partner with high adaptability for our customers:

We can look back on more than two decades of experience. During this time, we have repeatedly adapted our business model with foresight to the future requirements of the market. As a result, we have been able to grow continuously during this time and have become the leading independent platform for the trading and holding of funds in Germany.

We have taken an active part in the market consolidation of recent years: The first milestone was the integration of Münchener FondsServiceBank (FSB) in May 2009, with Fondsdepot Bank taking over all sales partner contracts as well as FondsService Bank's total of around 460,000 customer contracts for the custody and administration of investment fund securities accounts. The migration of the custody accounts to Fondsdepot Bank's IT platform was successfully completed "on time and on budget" in April 2010. The second milestone was the acquisition of the B2B investment account business for SEB Bank and SEB Asset Management, announced at the beginning of 2010. Another important step along this path was the transaction with VERITAS INVESTMENT TRUST in April 2010.

We also recorded continuous growth in our retail custody business - cooperation with financial investment brokers on our open platform. Thanks to numerous new sales cooperations, we grew organically by around 20 percent in 2010 alone.

Today we manage more than one million custody accounts with a volume of around 52 billion euros in assets under administration for over 200 major sales partners, the sales organizations of large insurance companies and banks as well as numerous well-known capital management companies (as of January 1, 2021)!

In 2020, we were able to conclude a long-term cooperation agreement with AXA Germany in the area of single premiums and cash investments.

Since the beginning of 2021, Fondsdepot Bank has provided the technology and service platform, including expertise, for the administration of fund-based investment direct business for three of the largest insurers in Germany.
