瑞士宝盛(Julius Baer)数字资产合作伙伴SEBA Bank进行B轮融资

2020-12-24 12:04

 

昨日,瑞士SEBA银行宣布已结束B轮融资。数字资产银行此前曾与瑞士私人银行宝盛(Julius Baer)合作,帮助其客户访问数字资产。


根据Coindesk的数据,2000万瑞士法郎的投资数字明显低于此前计划筹集的1亿瑞士法郎。但考虑到许多瑞士加密货币实体面临的财务压力,这将被视为一种成功。


SEBA Bank于2018年底宣布融资1亿瑞士法郎(合1.13亿美元)。在2019年底,它开始讨论再筹集1亿瑞士法郎,昨天的公告是最终结果。瑞士银行出版物Inside Paradeplatz将1亿欧元的融资描述为“像太阳下的雪一样融化”。


与瑞士数字资产银行Sygnum一起,SEBA是第一家从监管机构FINMA获得牌照的银行。


SEBA银行首席执行官Guido Buhler表示:“这种支持将使我们能够加速SEBA银行的强劲增长,我们也计划向中东和亚洲的新市场扩张,并为美国机构客户提供支持。”


SEBA在声明中表示,投资者包括来自瑞士、欧洲和亚洲的现有主要股东和新投资者。该公司表示,它计划在瑞士区块链法律生效时将其B轮股票代币化。


与此同时,SEBA的高级团队也发生了许多变化。其中一个关键因素是失去了董事长安德里亚斯•阿姆施万德(Andreas Amschwand),他曾是Julius Baer的董事,是该公司的联系纽带。他在7月辞去了SEBA的职务。其他离职的包括首席运营官Thomas Nietlispach和首席技术官Per Magnusson,前者大约在同一时间离职,后者在9月份离职。


另外,SEBA还参与了法国央行(Banque de France)批发中央银行(wholesale central bank)数字货币试验。

 

Yesterday Switzerland’s SEBA Bank announced it had closed its Series B funding. The digital asset bank previously partnered with Swiss private bank Julius Baer to enable its clients to access digital assets.

The investment figure of CHF 20 million (according to Coindesk) is significantly less than previous plans to raise up to CHF 100 million. But given the financial pressure on many Swiss cryptocurrency entities, this will be viewed as a success.

SEBA Bank announced in late 2018 that it raised CHF 100 million ($113 million). At the end of 2019, it started talking about raising another CHF 100 million, and yesterday’s announcement is the final result. Swiss banking publication Inside Paradeplatz described the Series A 100 million as “melting like snow in the sun”.

Along with fellow Swiss digital asset bank Sygnum, SEBA was the first to receive a license from regulator FINMA.

“This support will allow us to accelerate the strong growth SEBA Bank is delivering as we also plan to expand into new markets in Middle East and Asia and support US institutional clients,” said Guido Bühler, CEO of SEBA Bank.

In the announcement, SEBA said that investors included existing key shareholders and new investors from Switzerland, Europe and Asia. The firm stated that it plans to tokenize its Series B shares when the Swiss blockchain law comes into force.

Meanwhile, there have been numerous changes in SEBA’s senior team. Key amongst them is the loss of Andreas Amschwand as Chairman, who was the link to Julius Baer where he was a board director. He stepped down from his SEBA role in July. Other departures include COO Thomas Nietlispach, who left around the same time and CTO Per Magnusson, who moved on in September.

In other news, SEBA is also a participant in the Banque de France’s wholesale central bank digital currency trials.
