Vincent Germyns

Chairman of the BinckBank executive board:  “Since the origins of BinckBank in 2000, we have managed to build a strong position. We have become market leader in the Netherlands and Belgium and are strong challengers in France and Italy. We are confident that by combining BinckBank with Saxo Bank, we will be able to further strengthen our offering and growth in these markets. As such, it is important to note that Saxo Bank shares both BinckBank’s vision and mind-set focused on giving investors access to financial markets through technology and innovative solutions. Therefore, the combination of BinckBank and Saxo Bank is a natural fit and secures the future growth of BinckBank within a bigger and stronger organization and provides our customers with an even broader range of innovative products and services in the area of trading and investing.  Merging both companies will help realize important economies of scale. 


Kim Fournais

CEO and founder of Saxo Bank: “Combining BinckBank with Saxo Bank is a true win-win for all parties. BinckBank’s shareholders get an attractive premium, clients will get better products, prices, platforms and services, employees will benefit from enhanced career opportunities and, importantly, we will gain the necessary scale to further step up investments in technology and in our people. As the investment and trading industry matures and faces new regulation as well as rising expectations for digital client experience, scale, technology and multi-asset capabilities become increasingly key to long-term success. 
Our conversations and initial preparations over the past months have reaffirmed the strong cultural fit between BinckBank and Saxo Bank based on a shared vision and purpose to democratise investment and empower everyone to take control of their financial destiny. And Saxo Bank and BinckBank are highly complementary in terms of geographical footprint, brand, client segments, product suite and not least in the talented employees of both companies making for an ideal fit.”
