Swiss Private Bank Starts Offering Crypto Investments

by February 24, 2021

Bordier & Cie SCmA, a Swiss private bank founded in 1844, has expanded its offering to include cryptocurrencies by incorporating Sygnum’s B2B banking platform.

This partnership will enable Bordier clients to securely buy, hold and trade cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Tezos, and gain diversified exposure via Sygnum’s suite of digital asset management products.

Sygnum’s B2B banking platform is an integrated digital asset solution encompassing not only the technical infrastructure but also compliance as a service, research and sales education as well as access to a broad range of digital asset products.

Sygnum said that Bordier was able to fully integrate its B2B banking platform and offer seamless access to digital assets to their clients in under 60 days.

Investment diversification via cryptocurrencies has gained significant momentum as total market capitalisation of cryptocurrencies increased almost four-fold in 2020, making it the best-performing asset class and a powerful tool for portfolio diversification thus also increasing Bordier’s client-demand.
