Comprehensive protection for account,
securities account and data.
Security for your money and your securities
The current and securities accounts are held at Baader Bank, based in Munich, Germany. It is an investment bank with a universal banking licence, specialising in securities trading. As a technology leader for digital banking services, it guarantees competent, efficient and secure order processing to implement your investment strategy.
Your securities account – safe custody by a German bank
All securities are held as property of the investor and as segregated client assets by the Baader Bank. This means that they are separated from the bank’s own assets, ensuring that they remain safe, even in the unlikely event of the bank’s insolvency. In such a case, you would have a claim for the recovery of the securities held in custody for you by the bank.
Your current account – a bank account with deposit protection
The deposit protection scheme protects the balance of current accounts up to the individual limit of the bank where the account is held. As a universal bank, Baader Bank participates in the deposit protection scheme set up by the Association of German Banks (Bundesverband deutscher Banken), and offers extensive deposit protection. The bank is protected by the state Compensation Scheme of German Private Banks (Entschädigungseinrichtung deutscher Banken). This statutory deposit protection scheme covers up to €100,000 per depositor and bank. In addition, the bank is a member of the Deposit Protection Fund of The Association of German Banks
Deposit protection per account holder, including the statutory protection, i.e. the maximum coverage for an individual client’s deposits, is calculated on the basis of the bank’s equity, the exact amount of which can be viewed here: https://einlagensicherungsfonds.de/banks/baaderbank-aktiengesellschaft.
