VIP Program

How can I qualify for VIP status?

Qualification for VIP status is tied to the value of your Trading Account and/or your trade volume. Accounts that qualify for a new VIP status are updated within 30-days of meeting requirements. Once acquired, status is good until the 30th of June of the next year.

- Platinum: account value €1m or more (or currency equivalent)
- Apex: account value €5m or more and/or 12-month trade volume €25m+
You’ve traded €25m or more in stocks, ETFs, mutual funds, currencies and cryptocurrencies with Swissquote Bank Europe over a 12-month period

Does status expire?

Yes. Status is earned through the 30th of June of the following year. Your account must continue to meet qualification requirements for your status to be renewed.

What if I have more than one Swissquote account?

Your VIP status and benefits apply to one Trading Account at a time.

How does the VIP Priority Line work?

As a VIP client, you will benefit from priority service when you call or email us.

If you qualify for Apex, you will also receive personalised support from our Client Ambassador team.

Please make sure you call or email us from the phone number or email address that is registered on your account.

How do I receive my benefits?

You don’t need to do anything. Once your account qualifies for VIP, you will be notified within 30-days and your VIP benefits will automatically apply to your account.

Please make sure you call or email us from the phone number or email address that is registered on your account.

How does the VIP large trade bundles work?

Our VIP trade bundles are designed for investors that trade in larger sizes (from 250k to 1m $/€/Fr). You must call or email us to purchase a bundle of 4 or 20 large trades. Large trade bundles expire 12 months after purchase and are not renewed automatically.

Once the VIP trade bundle is active on your account, our standard rate of commission will continue to be charged on each trade, but you will be refunded at the end of each month to account for the lower cost of trading with a bundle.

Can I have a standard trade bundle and a large trade bundle at the same time?

Yes, you can. If you have a standard and a large trade bundle at the same time, trades under 250’000 $/€/Fr will be deducted from your standard trade bundle, and trades 250’000 $/€/Fr and larger will be deducted from your large trade bundle.

You will be charged standard commissions when settling your trades, but will be refunded at the end of each month to account for the lower cost of trading with your bundles.

What is the Junior Smart Portfolio?

A Junior Smart Portfolio is simply a Smart Portfolio on preferential terms for your children. Note that you will be the beneficial owner of the account as Swissquote Bank Europe does not currently support accounts for minors.
