What Is a Brokerage Account?

A brokerage account is a storage facility for securities. Before brokerage accounts were digitalised, brokerage accounts were still physical depositories where shares were stored as documents. A brokerage account used to be something like a special safe deposit box for shares. Nowadays, the FXFlat brokerage account fulfills exactly this function.

How Does a Brokerage Account Work?

Once you have completed the opening of your brokerage account, you will receive the access data to your new brokerage account. Your securities are stored in the digital brokerage account and are assigned to you alone. The ownership of your securities is always documented in the brokerage account and you have real-time access to your shares, ETFs and other securities for your trading activities in the account management and the trading platform.

At central depositories, the ownership is documented and processed after the purchase/sale on an exchange. In Germany, for example, this is done by Clearstream AG in Frankfurt as the central securities depository.

Can I Open a Brokerage Account Online?

The brokerage account is an online brokerage account. The entire process, from the application to the opening of the brokerage account, takes place completely online. You only need a PC/notebook, smartphone or a camera for a photo of your identification documents. We will then take care of the opening of the brokerage account for you.
