Sygnum Bank launches yield-generating DeFi investment solution



Zurich, 12 April 2022 – Sygnum announces today the launch of its Decentralised Finance (DeFi) based structured investment solution, Sygnum Yield Core AMC. It is designed to generate attractive ongoing returns from yield generating strategies in the growing USD 250 billion DeFi market.

  • Digital asset yield generating strategies (e.g., staking, lending, arbitrage) are offering investors attractive investment opportunities with very favourable risk-return profiles due to their low directional market exposure

  • Sygnum Yield Core AMC is available to professional and institutional clients directly through Sygnum or via other banks and brokers, with an initial minimum investment of ten certificates

  • Sygnum is building on their strong due diligence and portfolio construction capabilities to invest in a set of best-in-class yield funds

Despite recent small increases in interest rates and bond yields, historically, they remain at extremely low levels. Credit spreads remain relatively tight. This environment has attracted growing investor interest in the attractive yields and favourable risk-return profiles available in the crypto-markets.


With its Yield Core investment strategy, Sygnum is launching an Actively Managed Certificate (AMC) that accesses and seamlessly integrates high-quality investment solutions from industry-leading investment managers. Actively Managed Certificates (AMCs) are one of the most innovative, flexible, and cost-efficient investment vehicles available. Sygnum evaluates yield-generating strategies as they evolve and provides exposure to best-in-class opportunities in an institutional-grade pooled investment solution to its clients.


The Sygnum Yield Core AMC is designed to deliver consistently attractive risk-adjusted returns while having low directional market exposure. It offers diversified exposure to yield-generating strategies in small ticket sizes, supported by active, ongoing due diligence of the underlying investments. Investment in the Sygnum Yield Core AMC solution is available for professional and institutional clients directly from Sygnum, or from other banks or brokerages with a Swiss ISIN. Rigorous portfolio and operational risk management rules are applied to address both general and specific crypto investment risks. This pooled investment solution combines Sygnum’s expertise in assessing yield generating strategies and extensive access to highly attractive investment opportunities.


A range of new innovative investment strategies will be launched as part of Sygnum’s asset management product roadmap throughout 2022. These will provide investors with a continually expanding choice of bank-grade solutions across the full spectrum of digital asset investment opportunities.


Sygnum’s Head of Asset Management Fabian Dori commented: “DeFi markets continue to grow rapidly and offer significant return opportunities. Sygnum is launching a range of investment solutions that will enable our clients to easily invest in digital assets in a diversified manner with complete trust. The Sygnum Yield Core AMC represents a smart and unique investment, delivering consistent returns with low volatility. In times of low interest rates, you can put your capital to work in an intelligent fashion and further diversify your portfolio.
