Always perceived as an alluring home for businesses because of its welcoming regulatory environment as well as transparency, Switzerland is developing the conditions for blockchain and digital money startups to flourish. Crypto Finance AG is one of these startups. Established in June 2017, the financial technology holding organisation has got the same license as those professional fund managers from the financial regulator of Switzerland.

Getting this license has put the tech startup in a crucial position inside the financial figurings of the Alpine nation. The company is currently perceived as an asset manager of aggregate investment schemes, which means it can oversee and convey domestic as well as foreign funds, and advise the investors.

The Chief Executive Officer, Jan Brzezek said in a statement on Tuesday:

“FINMA authorization is an important acknowledgement of Crypto Fund and for crypto assets around the world.”

He brought up that this approval permits new businesses like theirs to take into account a wider group of expert investors in the cryptocurrency market.

Switzerland’s Crypto Valley

Switzerland is trying to embrace crypto by situating the lakeside town of Zug as “Crypto Valley”. As of now, Zug has a substantial presence of cryptocurrency and blockchain businesses, and the nation presently needs to extend its financial industry leadership position into the universe of cryptocurrency by using Zug as its staging point.

Talking at a crypto finance conference for institutional as well as private investors which was held in the Swiss Alps, Swiss Economics Minister Johann Schneider-Ammann said that Switzerland needs to be the “Crypto Country”.

As per the spectators, a reason behind Switzerland’s potential crypto achievement is its receptiveness to business development. Addressing the Financial Times earlier in 2018, Dr. Martin Eckert said:

“Swiss regulators are among the few that have a deep understanding of the technology and how it works.”
