Sygnum invests in future-proofing B2B banking platform as milestone of 10 banks reached

Update – April 2023: Sygnum’s B2B banking supports over 15 partner banks in private, retail and universal banking globally, so they can focus on growing strong client relationships.


Sygnum Bank confirms its strong B2B track-record by announcing that it is partnering with 10 leading banks, empowering them to offer flexible, regulated crypto banking services to their clients.

  • Sygnum provides regulated crypto services for partner banks, including modules for segregated client accounts, custody, trading, staking, tokenization and asset management that can be integrated with existing banking infrastructure
  • B2B partners retain full control of their client relationships, with Sygnum as trusted solution provider working in public association or in the background
  • To further strengthen its multi-custody platform, Sygnum holds majority share in Custodigit, its Joint Venture with Swisscom and SIX, and continues to invest meaningfully in in-house custody solutions for tokenization and Web3

Sygnum reaches milestone of 10 B2B banking partners

Ten leading banks, including the publicly announced Bordier & Cie SCmA and VZ VermögensZentrum, have now partnered with Sygnum to launch crypto banking services for their clients with rapid go-to-market timescales. Leveraging Sygnum’s modular B2B platform, they can deploy a range of regulated services including segregated client accounts, custody, trading, staking, tokenization and asset management – with no lock-in period.

says: “Our strategic partnership with Sygnum enabled us to offer digital assets in response to our client demand. This partnership provides us with a FINMA regulated, one-stop solution that enables our clients to invest in this high-growth asset class with complete trust”.

Orchestrating future-ready crypto banking

Sygnum has cemented its B2B partnerships due to its trusted team, consultative approach and, most importantly, its track-record of successful live deployments. Launching these on short timescales requires the tight orchestration of 200 of Sygnum’s Swiss-based crypto specialists. In addition to modular banking services, complementary elements include Sygnum’s plug-and-play API connectivity and risk and compliance management via proprietary crypto-AML tools, crypto compliance consulting and client-education.

Being an active participant of the crypto community, and having many of the institutions and individuals behind major global crypto and DeFi projects as clients and partners, ensures that Sygnum is involved in leading-edge projects that keeps its team, solutions and clients ahead of the industry.

says: “The growth of the Sygnum B2B banking ecosystem is a testament to the value of strategic client partnerships and the need for specialist teams to shape development and build trust in new, fast-moving asset classes. Sygnum is the digital asset bank for banks”.

Continual expansion of regulated crypto investment services

Since it gained its Swiss banking licence in August 2019, Sygnum has leveraged its flexible multi-custody platform to continually expand its cryptocurrency offering, currently numbering more than 20 leading tokens. Our market-tested multi-custody setup, primarily developed for institutional customers and other financial institutions, enables our B2B banking clients to accommodate different digital asset use-cases with a dedicated best-in-class platform without compromising security. To further build-out and complement our platform, Sygnum continuously screens the fast-changing digital asset infrastructure industry and integrates additional state-of-the-art components to broaden supported use-cases and enhance client experience. Included in major upcoming updates is the capability to more efficiently trade and settle smaller ticket sizes, as well as optimised management of clients’ trade margins and collateral to support further growth of our derivatives trading offering and Lombard Loan business.
