Switzerland’s crypto bank SEBA announced that it has officially opened its Hong Kong office and appointed Ludovic Shum as Managing Director to lead the team.

The bank said in a statement that it has a strong conviction for Hong Kong to become its first strategic location in APAC through its subsidiary.

SEBA Hong Kong’s initial activities will focus on consultancy services and market research, as well as engaging strategic partners for its head office in Switzerland.

The bank provides a suite of fully regulated banking and investment services, including trading, structured products, bank accounts, cards, credit, staking, and crypto and NFT custody.

SEBA Bank stringent security and deposit protection policy make it a secure, transparent and trusted crypto custodian in Switzerland.

Its client assets are held securely in segregated accounts, off the balance sheet, in a move to ensure that assets are always available for client withdrawal.

SEBA Bank had raised US$119 million in a Series C funding round to support its expansion efforts.
