Why choose Saxo Bank?

As a Copenhagen-based Danish bank, Saxo Bank offers geographical diversification for your assets. With a Saxo account, you get access to a state-of-the-art platform with all your trading-related needs, including more than 60,000 investment products from all over the world, high interest rates on deposits and illuminating content prepared by our international Strats team.


Geographical diversification

By placing some of your asset in a foreign bank, you diversify your geographical footprint. Assets held in your local bank are secured by the local guarantee fund (for EU countries), covering up to EUR 100,000. Assets deposited in Saxo Bank are secured by the Danish guarantee fund, adding an additional layer of protection to your assets.
An investment account with Saxo Bank is one of the few options for holding funds abroad in a bank. Opening a regular bank account with a foreign bank usually requires you to be a resident of that country Saxo Bank (a Copenhagen-based Danish bank) allows you to open an account remotely from all EU countries and most CEE countries. Denmark and the Scandinavian countries have long been renowned for their stability, which is crucial to making the right choice for keeping your capital safe.
We do not offer ordinary bank accounts or ATM cards, but you will have access to your funds at Saxo Bank from most of the world. Your Saxo account allows you to deposit and withdraw money from any bank account registered in your name.  When you deposit money from an external bank account, it will be automatically linked to your Saxo Bank account for seamless access to your capital when you need it.
Account linking also makes your funds even safer, as your money can only be withdrawn to a pre-registered account. While this cannot eliminate all the risks out there, you can rest assured that your money cannot be sent to any other accounts, spent online or paid out in an ATM. We also offer two-factor authentication, so you can increase security even more.
Funds at Saxo Bank can be invested in 60,000 financial products from all over the world, including shares, funds, ETFs or bonds, and you can even set up free currency sub-accounts for improved diversification. Importantly, free deposits that are waiting for investment opportunities can earn high interest. Read more about the terms and conditions in the FAQ section below.
