yes,but in businessterms "Depot" could also be a "securities account"


Explanation:
Anyway, I'd probably rather choose "application" instead of "request" since they're probably talking of forms.My suggestion would be:applications for the opening of deposits or securities accounts. I would not just adopt the German way of building long words into the English language but rather break it up as suggested in my attempt of an translation, it would probably sound more elegant/English.

requests/applications for opening of an account


Explanation:
Depot=deposit, depository . . . but also account
the question is depending on your context whether or not it is
better to use account--requests/applications for opening of accounts etc.

securities/custody account applications


Explanation:
As we do not have much context in these questions, either "securities" or "custody" might be right, according to Zahn, Eichborn, Hamblock/Wessels and Dietl/Lorenz business dictionaries. The word component "öffnungs" need not be translated. "Requests" would be unusual and most likely not correct.
