Zurich, 23 November 2021 – Sygnum Bank announces that it has onboarded VZ VermögensZentrum, an independent Swiss financial services company listed on SIX Swiss Exchange, as the latest partner for its B2B Banking solution.
VZ VermögensZentrum’s partnership with Sygnum Bank enables them to expand their offering with bank-grade, regulated digital asset services
Clients of VZ VermögensZentrum can now securely buy, hold, and trade various leading cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP, as well as access a range of regulated asset management services
Total cryptocurrency market capitalisation has now reached nearly US$3 trillion, driven by steadily increasing levels of institutional adoption and regulatory clarity across the globe. The high demand for crypto assets offers opportunities for banks and asset managers to work with trusted, expert partners such as Sygnum to expand their product range and become active in this dynamic asset class.
VZ VermögensZentrum’s core services are asset management, pension, and estate planning for individuals as well as insurance and pension fund management for companies. This partnership provides VZ VermögensZentrum and their clients with efficient and secure access to a diverse array of digital asset products and services via Sygnum Bank’s innovative B2B platform. Because Sygnum is a fully regulated digital asset specialist with a Swiss banking licence, it is one of the very few global banks that can offer a secure bridge between traditional finance and digital assets.
According to Fritz Jost, Sygnum Bank’s Chief B2B Officer: “We look forward to empowering even more banks to connect to our one-stop-shop modular offering - Custody, Brokerage, Asset Management, Lending and Tokenization. We continue to innovate and foster partnerships such as this to help our partners bridge the gap between the traditional fiat world and regulated digital asset ecosystem.”
