Sygnum, a Digital Asset Bank, Launches Business Operations in Abu Dhabi

Sygnum, the digital asset bank, announces the opening of its Middle East hub in the Abu Dhabi Global Market international financial centre “to provide a portfolio of Swiss-regulated crypto banking services.”

This move should further strengthen Sygnum’s global reach, “following Sygnum Singapore’s growth via corporate finance advisory and capital markets products, as well as expansion of regulated offering into Luxembourg.”

Giulia Finkbeiner-Bertoni, experienced Middle East executive, “leads regional operations as Senior Executive Officer and opens the office in the ADGM international financial centre.”

Abu Dhabi is a true “falcon economy” with MENA’s highest economic growth and 35% of the  population already “invested in the local USD 25bn crypto market”

Sygnum Bank Middle East has “received a Financial Services Permission (FSP) from the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA), following its in-principle approval in October 2022.”

Seasoned Middle East Executive, Giulia Finkbeiner-Bertoni, “leads Sygnum’s operations across the region and opens the office in the ADGM International Financial Centre.”

Sygnum Bank Middle East will “offer personal, concierge-style client service, enabling convenient local client access to a portfolio of Swiss-regulated digital asset banking, asset management, tokenization and B2B banking services.”

With regional demand for regulated crypto services on the rise, clients will be drawn from a diverse range of sectors, “ranging from existing local crypto foundations and projects to ‘traditional’ institutional investors and qualified HNWI looking for trusted crypto asset exposure through a regulated partner.”

Sygnum Bank Middle East’s Senior Executive Officer, Giulia Finkbeiner-Bertoni, says:

“The UAE has a proactive investment programme, a progressive crypto regulatory framework and a dynamic, tech-driven economy. We look forward to leveraging this momentum by bringing Sygnum’s trusted digital asset services to Abu Dhabi and the region.”

Sygnum’s local presence in Abu Dhabi “enables it to directly access a large and increasingly crypto-active wealth management market.”

According to new research, the Emirate of Abu Dhabi is a true “falcon economy” possessing the highest economic growth in the MENA region.

With 35% of the UAE population already invested in the local USD 25bn crypto market and over 1,400 crypto organizations locally-based, Abu Dhabi has “the potential to become a future regional and international hub for Web3, metaverse and blockchain-based projects.”

Arvind Ramamurthy, Chief of Markets at ADGM said:

“ADGM congratulates Sygnum Bank ME for obtaining their Financial Services Permission from ADGM’s FSRA and welcome them to our rapidly growing business ecosystem. We believe that Sygnum’s regulated finance offering in Abu Dhabi is a significant addition to our community and will contribute to the growth of the region.”

As noted in the update:

“As the largest regulated jurisdiction for digital assets in the MENA region, ADGM acts as a catalyst with the right tools that enable the growth of such companies within the UAE’s financial sector. With Sygnum’s presence in the region, we are committed to upholding market transparency and integrity that bolsters the economic growth of Abu Dhabi, attracts global companies and aids in making it a digital-first international financial hub for seamless business transactions.”
