BCB Group is a cryptocurrency prime broker, a service specifically designed to cater to the needs of institutional clients who need OTC best execution for their own accounts and who wish to offer cryptocurrency products and services to their own clients.
BCB Group’s service allows traditional brokers, hedge funds, crypto funds, wealth managers and private banks to extend their capabilities in the cryptocurrency market with a turn-key solution for onboarding, execution, settlement, reporting and custodianship. We relieve the operational burdens that come with this highly technical asset class to allow greater focus on generating alpha.
Our strong relationships with established UK banks allow for fast and seamless onshore settlement, a model we are replicating in the Swiss and South African markets. Our ongoing dialogue with UK, Swiss and South African regulators allow us to remain on the front foot as the landscape evolves.
With regular dialogue with regulatory bodies including the FCA (UK), FINMA (Switzerland) and SARB (South Africa), we closely follow developments in the regulatory environment. While this asset class remains largely unregulated, we shadow existing regulations applicable to traditional asset classes.
BCB Group operates robust risk management and compliance procedures, with KYC/AML policies and procedures designed to comply fully with existing UK anti-money laundering regulations combined with prudent risk and liquidity management. Our risk management processes address credit and market risk, liquidity, operational and systemic risk.
As investor demand increases for clear and transparent entry into the cryptocurrency market, BCB Group aims to provide a streamlined brokerage service for clients who are seeking to gain access to the burgeoning asset class, providing support throughout the investment process.
BCB Group pledges to give 1% of net annual profits to charitable causes.
