Everything you need to know about Self-directed Investing

What is Self-directed Investing (Zelf Beleggen)?

  • With Self-directed Investing, you invest your money yourself, without advice. You are fully responsible for your investments. You make your own investment decisions and execute the transactions yourself.

  • What are you interested in investing in? How investment savvy are you? You need to answer these and other questions before opting for Self-directed Investing and putting your investment portfolio together. All you have to do is answer the second part (Part B) of a short questionnaire about your investment profile. If you do not have enough knowledge of and experience with this investment product, we will contact you before submitting your order.

  • If you would like to have more control over your investments, you should consider filling out the first part (Part A) of the questionnaire. This part determines your risk profile and is helpful when investing. It takes a look at the goals you want to achieve with your investments, how much risk you are willing to take, and your current financial situation. With Self-directed Investing, we do not assess whether you are investing according to a risk profile. It's entirely up to you whether or not you determine your risk profile. But if you have determined your risk profile, you can use the simple portfolio analysis tool in Internet Banking to determine whether your portfolio still matches your risk profile. It's a good way of staying in control of your investments.
