Frequently asked questions about children accounts

With which custodian bank is the children's account opened?

Children's accounts are opened with Baader Bank as the custodian bank. Unfortunately, our partner ING is not yet able to offer custody accounts for minors.

How is the child identified?

There are three possible cases

a) Children younger than 10 years:
Please send us a scan of the child's birth certificate.

b) Children older than 10 and younger than 16 years:
If a signed passport or identity card is available, identification can be completed directly via the Scalable customer area. Please note that we do not accept children's passports.

If you don’t have a signed passport or identity card, please send us a scan of the birth certificate by email.

c) Children older than 16 years:
Identification can be done directly in the Scalable client area.

After receiving the online registration, we will send you an email about the identification process with all the necessary information.

How does the identification of the parents take place?

Both legal guardians must be identified via PostIdent. If you already have an account with us (with custody account management at Baader Bank), a verification for the account holder is not required.

After receiving the online registration, we will send you an email regarding the identification process with all necessary information.

Do both parents have to agree to the account?

Yes, if the custody of the minor is shared, the consent and verification of both parents is required.

If they have sole custody, we require proof of custody for this. Once we have received the proof, one sole consent is sufficient. If the legal guardians have different surnames, proof of custody or a marriage certificate is also required.

Are there any additional documents to fill in?

Please complete this additional form. Then sign it and send it back to us (a scan is sufficient).
