Crypto Broker AG which is the Crypto Finance Group‘s brokerage, has been granted a license as a securities house with a bilateral trading facility by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA)

Once the license comes into effect, it could potentially bring in new business as the possibility to trade security tokens will bring continued growth for financial service clients with specific products and complete core banking solutions.

This license also serves to establish further trust in Crypto Broker AG as one of the crypto brokers worldwide fulfilling the licensing requirements that securities firms active in the established financial markets do.

Crypto Broker said in a statement that the license is recognition of the group’s professional approach to crypto asset trading, liquidity provision, and innovation in financial services.

In the previous year, the brokerage reported trading over USD 1 billion in assets in 2020 and is said to be poised for further growth.
