The Swiss subsidiary of Arab Bank, a banking giant in the Middle East, is starting to provide trade and storage services for BTC and ETH.
Thanks to this initiative, large-capital clients serviced by Arab Bank Switzerland, including business leaders and family entrepreneurs, can now access digital assets.
“We strongly believe that the blockchain will dramatically change the financial industry, and we intend to be one of the first banks to offer digital asset services for customers in a safe and regulated environment,” said Arab Robin CEO Serge Robin .
Regarding custodial services, the bank has partnered with Taurus Group, which has integrated its cold storage solution called TAURUS-PROTECT with the bank’s infrastructure. Taurus notes that the solution uses the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2, Certified Equipment Security Modules (HSM) Level 3, and “some of the safest hardware in the world”
“We now have a fully regulated and scalable infrastructure that we will use to provide our clients with institutional-grade digital asset services in addition to our traditional asset and credit management solutions,” said Rani Jabban, a member Board of Arab Bank Switzerland.
In February this year, the Swiss bank Julius Baer and SEBA, with the participation of the cryptocurrency company SEBA Crypto AG, began to offer
digital asset services.
