The business model of Fondsdepot Bank

You ask how our business model works and what our relationship is with our business and end-clients?
Basically, it's very simple:

your StrategicInvestment fund custody account with all-round service

You do not have the time to follow the financial market every day, but would you still like to manage your investment flexibly? Both of these goals can be realised with the affordable StrategicInvestment fund custody account. An expert, selected by you, manages your assets in your interests. Fondsdepot Bank offers you the technical basis for fast action on the capital market and risk-optimised management of your custody account.

As part of an investment guideline previously defined between you and your asset manager, the latter can make these investment decisions independently. This is based on a corresponding power of attorney, which unlike classic investment advice, simplifies the documentation of purchases, sales and reallocations. On the one hand, the guideline regulates the investment approach and consequently the orientation of the custody account and on the other hand the target and risk parameters specified within the contract. All in all, this should result in improved opportunity recognition and risk limitation.

Fondsdepot Bank is the professional partner for smooth administration of this custody account behind the scenes. With more than two decades of experience in fund banking, about a million investment custody accounts administered with around 40 billion EUR in assets under administration and over 400 employees, Fondsdepot Bank is the leading independent custody account management specialist in Germany (as of 12/2019).

Asset management made easy


You receive all settlement documents in InfoManager as part of the asset management. You receive a detailed overview of your investment and its value development every quarter. Naturally, you receive cost-neutral delivery of your annual custody account statement and annual tax certificate by post.

Loss threshold:

Daily monitoring and valuation of the assets you contributed to the asset management is legally prescribed and is guaranteed by the Fondsdepot Bank reporting. As a result, if the total value of the portfolio valued at the beginning of a reporting period falls by 10% or other value losses occur in 10% increments, you receive a corresponding depreciation notice.
