Our fees

Managing your wealth should not cost you a fortune. Whatever the nature of your investment, easyvest offer our services for only a fraction of the fees charged by traditional banks and insurers.

We can opt for two investment solutions with easyvest :

1. Investment account

1.1. Management fees 

Easyvest's management fees are between 0,5% and 1,00% per annum of the assets under management on an investment portfolio.

The exact percentage depends on the total value of the portfolio under management, as detailed in the following table: 

You investYou pay
Less than 24.999 €1,00%/yr incl. VAT
25.000 € - 49.999 €0,90%/yr incl. VAT
50.000 € - 99.999 €0,75%/yr incl. VAT
100.000 € - 249.999 €0,60%/yr incl. VAT
More than 250.000 €0,50%/yr incl. VAT

The valuation of the assets under management is calculated on the last working day of the month at 10 P.M. Belgian time, i.e. after the closing of the European stock exchanges. One twelfth (1/12th) of the amount shown in the table above is charge on the portfolio value at the end of each month.

No other direct or indirect remuneration is received by Easyvest in connection with its portfolio management service. In particular, no brokerage fees (free of charge) or custody fees (free of charge) are charged. 

In the event that the contractual relationship is blocked for legal, judicial, or contractual reasons (e.g. death, seizure, etc.), Easyvest will continue to execute its portfolio management mandate and to receive management fees. 

The management fees of eastvest do not include the management fees of the trackers in which the portfolio invests (on average 0.3% per year), as well as financial taxes, such as the tax on stock exchange transactions or the withholding tax. All the fees and taxes borne by the client over a year are reported to him monthly at the same time as each account statement sent by easyvest, or by the custodian. 

In the event that the contractual relationship is blocked for legal, judicial, or contractual reasons (e.g. death, seizure, etc.), Easyvest will continue to execute its portfolio management mandate and to receive management fees.

Withholding tax

Trackers with more than 25% bonds are subject to capital gains tax when the fund units are sold, provided that the investor has realized a capital gain between purchase and sale.

This tax, called withholding tax, amounts to 30% of the capital gain.

Tax on investment accounts

At the time we write these lines (1/1/2022), this is a wealth tax of 0,15% per year on the value of all investment accounts worth more than 1.000.000€. For more information on the tax on securities investment accounts, we invite you to consult the explanatory page of our custodian here.

Taxation of Belgian non-residents

Clients of Easyvest, who are not Belgian tax residents, are exempt from all Belgian taxes mentioned above. Easyvest will therefore not deduct any tax from these accounts.  

However, it is the customer's responsibility to check with her country of residence for any taxes due and to pay them. 

Easyvest declines all responsibility for any tax default by a client towards a tax authority other than the Belgian tax authority.
