Investment in Crypto Assets with Maximum Security

As an internationally positioned private bank, we combine tradition with innovation. This is why we provide you with access to the new up-and-coming crypto asset class (an asset class comprising digital assets). With us as your partner, you trade and manage your crypto assets in a regulated banking environment.

Regardless of whether an investor is personally confident or skeptical about the merits of a decentralized financial system of this kind, this innovative asset class can make a beneficial contribution to a portfolio’s risk/return profile. However, compared to conventional asset classes like stocks or bonds, it is still relatively complicated to acquire and manage crypto assets.

 


Your benefits at a glance

  • Further diversification by blending crypto into your portfolio as an additional asset class
  • Attractive pricing
  • Can be used as additional collateral for a Lombard loan
  • The crypto assets under custody are treaded like securities (not like cash held in an account)
  • Kaiser Partner Privatbank AG operates under the comprehensive oversight of the Liechtenstein Financial Market Authority (FMA) and is registered as a token custodian pursuant to the Liechtenstein Blockchain Act (Token and Trusted Technology Service Provider Act)
  • Crypto assets remain protected even in the event of bankruptcy and are segregated for the client’s benefit pursuant to the Liechtenstein Banking Act (Art. 56c)

 

As a fully regulated bank, Kaiser Partner Privatbank AG provides a secure and convenient crypto asset custody solution. It enables you to trade crypto assets just as easily as trading conventional assets like stocks or bonds, and it allows you to rest assured at all times that your digital assets are held in safekeeping in accordance with the strictest security standards.

Cryptocurrencies to be acquired at the Bank against government currencies such as CHF, EUR or USD (“fiat money”) or in exchange for other cryptocurrencies (e.g. direct exchange of Bitcoin for Ether). It is also possible to deposit supported cryptocurrencies (currently BTC, ETH, ADA, UNI, LTC, LINK, BCH, USDC; range is still expanding) from an external wallet or acceptable crypto exchange / bank (“transfer-in”) as well as withdraw existing positions (“transfer-out”). On request, we also offer staking services for selected crypto assets.

For investors interested in digital assets, the following options are available at Kaiser Partner Privatbank AG:

  • Execution Only: Investment decisions are in the sole responsibility of the client, with no advisory on the part of the bank.
  • As part of a discretionary mandate: Digital assets can be incorporated in a discretionary mandate, where the allocation to this asset class is decided on by the client according to their individual needs and taking into account their risk profile.
  • External asset managers: Alternatively, the client may rely on an external asset manager to make all investment decisions according to the needs of the client.

Regardless of the option considered by the client, we strongly recommend a thorough assessment of the market risks and other specific risks as well as the client’s own risk profile before investing in digital assets.

1 Trading cryptoassets is only possible within our official trading hours.


Highest security standards

We guarantee the highest security standards for the custody and trading of cryptocurrencies and other digital assets:

  • Comprehensive and specific supervision: As a bank, we are subject to comprehensive supervision by the Liechtenstein Financial Market Authority (FMA). In addition, we are specifically regulated according to the Liechtenstein Blockchain Act TVTG, under which we are registered as a so-called token custodian. As a bank, our correspondent bank for digital assets is also subject to comprehensive supervision by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).
  • Protection against counterparty risk: you as a customer only have a single, trusted counterparty – our bank. I.e., you are never exposed to any counterparty risk in relation to brokers, crypto exchanges or other third parties we might work with for trading purposes.
  • Protection against theft: all digital assets are held by Kaiser Partner or our specialized correspondent bank in wallets protected by the highest IT security standards. A large part of the assets are also held in so-called “cold storage” (i.e. on encrypted storage media without an Internet connection, which are kept in a multi-secured safe), which makes attacks via the Internet impossible.
  • Protection against bankruptcy of the bank: Digital assets are held by Kaiser Partner Private Bank in a custody account, as investors know it from securities. Since the assets are booked outside the bank’s balance sheet, in the unlikely event of bankruptcy they do not fall into the bankruptcy estate by virtue of banking law.
