Zug, 12 November 2019 – More than 10 years after the invention of Bitcoin, there is still a tremendous gap between traditional banking on one side and decentralised finance on the other side. SEBA Bank, an integrated bank focused on digital assets, works as a bridge builder offering a comprehensive range of services in digital as well as in traditional finance. In August, it received a licence from the Swiss Financial Market Authority FINMA – the first time such a licence to a bank with a main focus on digital assets and crypto was granted.
Expansion into nine additional markets
For the first time, the Zug-based financial institution combines traditional banking with the new crypto/digital world, offering a wide range of services in the areas of asset management, trading, custody and financing. The tokenization of investment products, real assets, rights and primary financing constitutes another mainstay and will be offered in the near future. This enables SEBA to cover the entire lifecycle of digital assets.
