We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with BC Technology Group (Stock Code: 863 HK) to establish a digital-asset brokerage and exchange platform for institutional and corporate clients in the UK and Europe.

Digital-asset trading has grown significantly, with the total value of trading volume on major digital-asset exchanges averaging over USD4 billion per day, drawing the attention of institutional customers. Leveraging Standard Chartered Bank’s global network, experience in brokerage and access to European markets + BC Group’s leading, SFC-licensed OSL digital-asset technology, the new company will connect institutional traders to counterparties across markets, delivering access to deep pools of liquidity in Bitcoin, Ethereum and other digital assets.

Congratulations to new CEO Usman Ahmad and COO Nicholas Philpott!
