Existing investment portfolios

SGKB boldly steps into the digital asset space with this week’s launch, in partnership with SEBA Bank.

This move will enable its clients to seamlessly integrate cryptocurrencies into their existing investment portfolios, showcasing the bank’s commitment to providing cutting-edge financial services.

“Thanks to our cooperation with SEBA Bank, we’ve implemented a straightforward initial setup, which allows us to learn and grow well aligned to our clients’ needs,” St. Galler Kantonalbank Head of Market Services Falk Kohlmann said.
