Costs

This is what you pay us 

You pay us service costs and transaction costs. Service costs are costs for the administration of your investment portfolio and the information we provide about it. You pay transaction costs when buying and selling your shares and ETFs.

This is what you pay to other parties 

If you have investment funds in your portfolio, you must take into account the costs that these funds incur. These are external costs and administration costs, for example. We call these the running costs. These are already included in the price of the investment fund. The Essential Investor Information for each fund states the costs.

Overview of costs you pay us

Type of Costs

Rate

Service costs

0,2% of the value of your investment portfolio. 

From € 100,000 the service costs are 0.12%, from € 400,000 the service costs are 0.06%

Transaction costs per order

  • Investment funds: no transaction costs 
  • Domestic shares: €5 + 0.05% on the value of the order, per order
  • Foreign shares: €10 + 0.10% on the value of the order, per order
  • ETFs: €5 + 0.05% on the value of the order, per order

You pay costs for investing. These lower your return. You also run risks with investing. Therefore, consider whether investing is (still) appropriate for you. Or whether saving might be a better solution for you.

Sample calculation

To give you a good idea of the annual costs for investing, ABN AMRO uses sample profiles. These sample profiles show you the expected annual costs if you invested the same or approximately the same as the sample profile. We show you different sample profiles, and each sample profile has its own characteristics.

Choose the sample profile that best fits your investment portfolio and investment behaviour. The annual costs in the sample profile will then be comparable to the costs that you would incur yourself. This allows you to see the expected annual costs for investing before you start.

Influence of costs on return

This calculation example shows the influence of all costs on the return on your investment. We use a fixed return of 4% per year for this. Your actual return may therefore be different. This fixed return allows you to make a proper comparison between our costs and those of other providers of investment services.

This is not a prediction, but a sample calculation. If the return is higher or lower than in this example, the costs will generally also be higher or lower.

Sustainable investing

When investing sustainably, the consequences of the investment play an important role. That is why it is also referred to as socially responsible investing. A sustainable investor wants to contribute to a better world. In addition to the environment, sustainable investors also promote human rights and education, for instance.

Socially responsible investing is an important principle of ABN AMRO. Certain investments are completely excluded for all investment types. Investments in producers of cluster bombs and landmines, for instance.

Would you like to (partly) invest in sustainable investment funds? You can easily see how sustainable the funds you select are in the Fund Selector or filter them based on sustainability.
