Bank J.Van Breda & C°

Bank J.Van Breda & C° is a specialised bank that focuses specifically on businesses and the liberal professions, covering both professional and private needs throughout their lifetime

The bank was founded in Lier in 1930 by Jos Van Breda and has maintained its individuality ever since. It is making every effort to retain its independence in the future

Since 1998, the bank's shares have been established in the Finaxis holding company, along with those of Bank Delen, one of the largest independent asset managers in Belgium. Thanks to close cooperation, Bank J.Van Breda & C° also offers its clients the professional services of this renowned bank.

Ackermans & van Haaren, the reference shareholder, now owns 78.75% of the shares in Finaxis. Promofi holds 21.25% of the capital.

On 20 May 2011, Bank J.Van Breda & C° acquired control of the Antwerps Beroepskrediet (ABK). Like Van Breda Car Finance, this subsidiary has been given a separate strategy focused on a clearly distinct target market. ABK is repositioned as a premium bank for affluent individuals.
