Certificate of Incorporation/Banking licence
The object of the bank’s incorporation in its present form, i.e. Van Lanschot Kempen NV, as established on 30 June 1978 was and is the continuation of the business of the partnership of F. van Lanschot ("Firma F. van Lanschot"), which has been carried on since 1737. Unfortunately the historical official "Certificate of Incorporation" of the original firm as established back in 1737 is not available. However, the bank’s Articles of Association do make mention of this object of the company (in Article 2).
Further please refer to the declaration issued by the Dutch Central Bank with respect to (i.a.) Van Lanschot Kempen NV (formerly named F. van Lanschot Bankiers N.V.) being a legally registered credit institution and its authorisation to engage in universal banking business.
This document is intended for banks in the United States of America that hold correspondent accounts for Van Lanschot Kempen NV. The Certificate is based on the USA Patriot Act, i.a. certifying that Van Lanschot is not a shell bank and does not serve shell banks.
