Deutsche Bank and Swiss Taurus Sign Global Digital Asset Partnershipby Fintechnews Switzerland September 20, 2023
Taurus , a Switzerland based digital asset technology provider, has signed a global partnership agreement with Deutsche Bank.
As part of the collaboration, Deutsche Bank will integrate Taurus’ market-leading technology to establish digital asset custody and tokenization services.
“This partnership is the result of a thorough and detailed selection and due diligence process where Taurus was able to demonstrate the quality and breadth of its products and technology,”
said Taurus co-founder Lamine Brahimi.
“We are pleased to implement this global partnership with Deutsche Bank and look forward to supporting the bank in launching digital assets and DLT-based products and services across several booking centers.”
Founded in 2018, Taurus provides enterprise-grade digital asset infrastructure to issue, custody, and trade digital assets, such as cryptocurrencies, tokenized assets, NFTs, and digital currencies. As such, this partnership is a natural extension of recent Deutsche Bank’s digital asset focused initiatives.
“As the digital asset space is expected to encompass trillions of dollars of assets, it’s bound to be seen as one of the priorities for investors and corporations alike. As such, custodians must start adapting to support their clients,”
said Paul Maley, Global Head of Securities Services.
“This is why we are excited to partner with Taurus, a leading digital asset infrastructure provider with a proven track record and extensive expertise in the crypto and tokenization space.”
Earlier this year, Deutsche Bank also participated in Taurus’ $65 million Series B funding round alongside Credit Suisse, Pictet Group, and Arab Bank Switzerland.
