How will digital onboarding for private customers work?

Watch the recording from our webinar #10 on onboarding
Onboarding private customers
Opening private, single accounts through Saxo’s digital onboarding flow allows for account applications to be processed swiftly, on the condition that all documents provided meet the specified documentation requirement.
The process starts with a pre-onboarding flow where you select your investment management type and language.
You also determine if you submit the onboarding application together with your customer or if the customer will do the submission.
As part of the process, the system generates a personal onboarding link for each new customer which you can easily share.
You can keep track of the onboarding status of your private account applications in SaxoPartnerConnect. Watch the video on ‘monitoring onboarding’.
How will the onboarding of corporate, joint and minor accounts work?
Corporate, joint and minor accounts are onboarded to Saxo’s infrastructure using a paper-based client application form (CAF). All customer types are onboarded under the legal entity of BinckBank N.V., like you have been used to.
View the client application forms at our help centre.
