December expansion to Luxembourg

In December 2022, Sygnum expanded its Swiss-regulated crypto offering to Luxembourg. According to the Sygnum press release, the bank selected Luxembourg as part of its international expansion strategy due to its regulatory frameworks, growing adoption, and strong local demand for institutional-grade crypto services. This international expansion into Luxembourg aims to enable access to digital asset funds in the world’s second-biggest fund and asset management investment market.
