An example of the costs

To give you a good idea of the annual costs of investing, ABN AMRO uses sample profiles. These sample profiles show you the expected annual costs if you were to invest the same or approximately the same as the sample profile. We show you different example profiles, each of which has their own characteristics.

Choose the sample profile that best fits your investment portfolio and investment behaviour. The annual costs in the example profile are then comparable to the costs that you would incur yourself. In this way, you can see the expected annual costs for investing before you start investing.
