Higher bank fees owing to
zero in­te­rest rate policy

As a result of the current si­tua­ti­on on the fi­nan­ci­al markets (i.e. zero in­te­rest rate policy), several banks have in­crea­sed their fees, also for safe custody and account ser­vices. This has ne­ga­ti­ve effects on the net return of an in­vest­ment port­fo­lio.
