    Thanks...rang local AIB branch and was told they'd be introducing them initially as a pilot, eg for staff first, and hoped to have role out for all by year end.

    Do you have copies of the transfer documentation from Ulster including BIC & IBAN info etc which you would have signed to effect the transfer, and is this all in order? Assuming all details have been correctly included in the transfer documentation, you should really bring this to a higher...

    A very unsettling experience for anyone and hopefully your money finds it's way home soon. Personally I've always found them extremely helpful and fault need not lie with keytrade alone and could be Ulster, or incorrect IBAN / BIC codes on transfer paperwork, or combination thereof. Lot of...

    I had the same problem, rang them after 1st week to block my a/c and resend logon details. Details eventually started arriving sometime during 2nd week (I was away so can't say exactly), but strangely I never received the full contingent of 3 old and 3 new letters, so something still did go...

    As an easily accessible offshore option they are a most welcome first stop for many Irish savers. However, we are all a lot wiser now and know that all eggs should not be in one basket. Therefore, no matter how "secure" Keytrade or Belgium might or might not be, we have been well forewarned that...

    Ring and get them to "lock" your account and block internet access which they can do immediately. Once all your logon details arrive (assuming they do), let them know and they'll unblock it.

    There would no doubt be a paper trail to prove its legitimacy, assuming of course it was legitimately on deposit in the first place.

    Where can we buy German Government Bonds?

    There's not much difference really between the two, same criteria necessary to open an a/c with the german bond issuing agency as for any german bank, and both held in same currency in same country.

    Money on Deposit Safety of the Euro

    Don't know anything about EFT's, but anyone out there got any ideas about the following... Sell euros and buy eg Norwegian kronen as a forex trade by going short on the currency pair. Is it not the case that forex brokers offer much tighter spreads than banks and you'd also benefit by holding...

    It took over a week before the first of my docs started arriving, I had rung them about it and they didn't seem too surprised as if it was normal. Tip..get skype installed or whatever because you may well be calling them a bit until you get settled in.

    Money on Deposit Safety of the Euro

    We've always been subject to the vagaries of the currency markets and exchange rates, but especially since the onset of the current global financial crises those with savings have all been heavily involved in currency speculation, however unwillingly and unwittingly. This is a risky game where...

    Losing our sovereignty - what's the big deal!

    All due respect, but a poll on whineline as to how people "feel", shouldn't be confused with the merits or effects which this economic bailout will have on us... listen in to Joe again in a few weeks after the IMF/EU budget is announced and see what's being said then :-( "...The most...

    Opened an a/c relatively recently and first I've heard about a "first wire" transfer or whatever, must be something new. I got immediate confirmation per email once they had received all my docs that my a/c was opened, along with just the deposit a/c number. I emailed them back for the IBAN &...

    How is it going with the movement of your savings abroad?

    Ordinary photocopy of passport (inside & out), and utility/bank statement suffice fully.
