We Were One of the First to Provide Proof of Reserves

We periodically work with an external auditor to independently verify that we custody assets with a perfect 1:1 backing. This approach ensures our users can place their trust in us and fosters greater transparency in the industry. To date, this transparency has only been matched by a few.

Asset Ownership & Segregation

We never take ownership of your assets. Your assets are held by us on your behalf, or with a professional custodial partner. In the unlikely event of insolvency, you retain ownership of your assets.

This approach not only separates client assets from our company's operational funds but also minimises the risk of unauthorised access.
