Just as safe as the fortress of the same name.

Knox is the custodian where your assets can be safely stored. 

I want to know more

The first depository established for and by asset managers themselves.

Of course, you want your assets to be stored as safely as possible, but preferably at a low cost. That is why we, a group of asset managers, have joined forces and set up our own custodian institution: Knox. This allows us to create a joint purchasing advantage for services that we purchase directly from renowned institutional banks, such as BNP Paribas. Moreover, Knox will not have a profit motive: this can significantly reduce the cost of storage and that is good news for your return on investment.

Your securities cash account is held at BNP Paribas.
Knox is supervised by the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) and the Dutch Central Bank (DNB).
Your assets are legally protected by the investor compensation scheme, the deposit guarantee scheme and the Securities Book-Entry Transfer Act.
Knox is owned by the participating asset managers: Knox only serves the interests of you and your asset manager, who would like to achieve a good return for you.
Knox is managed by a board of directors with proven expertise and an excellent reputation in the financial sector.
Only supervised asset managers can become members of Knox.
Our services are fully supported by institutional banks.
Knox works with the technology of an ISAE3402 certified service organization.

Your asset manager prefers to work as independently as possible. He or she probably has specific ideas about how to generate the best returns, and he or she prefers to make important investment decisions for you themselves. That’s how your interest is best served – and no one else’s. A fully independent custodian service guarantees this freedom to act.
