Switzerland’s SEBA Bank launches an innovative investment product that takes advantage of bitcoin’s high volatility.The Dual Currency Certificate on BTC/USD offers easy entry into the cryptocurrency market and an attractive return.The potential loss associated with bitcoin is offset by a yield of 3.23% for a fixed three-week, 2 days term (annualized yield of 44.70%). The certificate is publicly distributed in Switzerland and is available in other countries as a private placement.

Zug, 24 June 2020–SEBA Bank has developed a Dual Currency Certificate in USD on BTC/USD. It is aimed at investors who wish to benefit from the high level of the cryptocurrency’s volatility. With this product, SEBA Bank is kicking off a strategic series of recurring structured products on digital assets. Investors’ need for security with regard to potential issuer risk is addressed through full collateralization of the issuing vehicle and a guarantee from SEBA Bank.

Guido Bühler, CEO of SEBA Bank AG, says, “The launch of the Dual Currency Certificate on BTC/USD shows how traditional banking and crypto finance are converging.
