How to open a book-entry account and choose a service package that suits you

You will get access to a book-entry account and securities custody by opening an investment service package. When opening the account, you will choose a service package that suits you. Our services for equity investors consist of two packages depending on trading activity.  

Both of them automatically include securities custody and a book-entry account. Both service packages also include extensive, high-quality Finnish equity and market analysis services.

Select the Saver’s service package if you trade less actively and if comprehensive, high-quality basic services are sufficient for you.

If you wish, you can supplement the package with real-time market information that is more extensive than the standard package. The supplement will be subject to an additional fee.

If you transfer your securities custody to us from another custodian, please prepare for an interruption in your equity trading for five business days.

You can supplement both packages with more extensive real-time market information, subject to an additional fee.

You will trade free of charge for the first 30 days, and there will be no monthly charge for the current or the next calendar month. After this, your trading will be subject to brokerage fees specified in the list of charges and fees.
