Sygnum AG: New Financial Technology Company Sygnum Gains Swisscom and daura as Partners and Singtel Innov8 as Investor
Sygnum is a Swiss- and Singapore-based company that was founded by an experienced interdisciplinary team of Swiss and Singaporean professionals, backed by a distinguished group of individuals and institutions. The company builds on the strengths of today's financial services infrastructure and enhances it with the possibilities of the new world of distributed ledger technologies and digital assets - with blockchain technology being today's most prominent example of distributed ledger technology. Sygnum aims to provide clients and partners with an integrated solution to securely issue, store, trade and manage digital assets.
Sygnum, Swisscom and daura: building an ecosystem for digital assets
As strategic partners, Sygnum, Swisscom and daura AG will build a digital asset ecosystem addressing the key pain points associated with the integration of digital ledger technology into the financial industry. The ecosystem addresses important issues such as the absence of regulated fiat-digital gateways and the lack of compliant and secure custody solutions for digital assets.
In practical terms, Sygnum and its partners are working on the following solutions:
Institutional investor-grade custody solution
Peter Hofmann, Senior FinTech expert at Swisscom and interim CEO of CUSTODIGIT, said: "The cooperation of Sygnum and CUSTODIGIT combines unique know-how in the fields of digital assets, banking, compliance and technology. This fosters the development of a digital assets custody platform for the regulated financial industry."
Issuance and settlement of digital assets
"Sygnum and daura are a perfect ecosystem fit. We both share a vision of tokenized assets being held on the blockchain. While daura provides the legal and technical framework to issue shares on the blockchain in a fully compliant manner with Swiss regulations, Sygnum is building an integrated infrastructure solution to help companies raise capital from investors", says Peter Schnürer, CEO of daura.
"We designed a framework to merge compliance relevant blockchain-based information with existing AML concepts. The result is an efficient AML tool which meets Swiss compliance standards", says Luka Müller, Founding Partner and Chairman of the board of Sygnum.
Switzerland and Singapore as target markets
Manuel Krieger and Mathias Imbach, Founding Partners of Sygnum, are delighted with the progress made to advance the digital asset ecosystem. "We are grateful for the support received by key institutions in both Switzerland and Singapore. We are confident that together we can help to make a difference in solving the challenges that the finance industry and the new world of distributed ledger technology and digital assets face. In the first phase, our planned offerings will target qualified/accredited as well as institutional investors. In the second phase, we plan to offer bank-to-bank technology solutions to empower other financial institutions to provide services to the token economy. Through this, we hope to help put the new and rapidly growing digital asset ecosystem on a solid and future-proof foundation. The table is set - we now continue to focus on delivery."
