Wealth management by Dukascopy Bank: let's create liquidity together

In a strategical shift to become a universal mobile bank useful to everyone, Dukascopy Bank (Dukascopy) steps into wealth management.
 
From now on, clients of Dukascopy have a really unique opportunity to make money by offering FX and CFD liquidity together with 25 banks providing liquidity to Dukascopy clients.
 
Statistically, in the long term, these banks providing liquidity will earn half of the market spread. Dukascopy offers to bite off a piece of these bank's business.
 
Starting from a  1'000 USD minimum investment and upon receiving a management mandate, Dukascopy will automatically start trading for its clients. On the basis of its own technology, the Bank will match sell trades of investors with buy trades of other clients, at the same Ask price, and will match their buy trades with sell transactions of other clients, at the same Bid price. This is the traditional role of all liquidity providers.
 
The average expected return of this service is 11.15% with a standard deviation of 9.99% which gives a sharpe ratio of 1.11. This service is free of management or performance fees.
 
Dukascopy also created unparalleled risk management tools by providing investors with unique systems allowing to limit possible losses on their investment. Moreover, as a testimony of trust in its own technology and willingness to satisfy its loyal clients, Dukascopy commits to returning trading commissions in case managed clients would get an annual negative performance after keeping their investment for one year, without withdrawing any funds (full details read here).
 
The Bank believes that this offer has no equivalent on the market and should satisfy a large clientele. A simple comparison of a sharpe ratio of 1.11 of proposed investment (LP PAMM) with a sharpe ratio of another class of investments shows that Dukascopy proposes investments of a very high quality. The sharpe ratio calculation time-frame was the same. Please see table below.

Dukascopy Bank welcomes crypto exchanges and crypto brokers

Following its strategical decision of becoming a crypto friendly Swiss bank, Dukascopy Bank is pleased to announce that it makes a second step in this direction, opening accounts for players of the crypto industry.
The first move has been to start offering CFD on Bitcoin since the first quarter 2018.

Now, at the second step, the Bank opens its doors for a new type of clients, who were not serviced before crypto brokers and crypto exchanges. In order to tackle risks related to the anonymity of crypto transactions, the Bank opens a corporate accounts for companies and personal MCA accounts for clients of these companies. In this manner, any money transfer between the crypto company and its client will remain inside the Bank's secure network and under control of the Bank.

For corporate accounts, the Bank will insure execution of regular administrative payments, settlements of company's transactions with its counterparts, processing of company's clients incoming and outgoing payments and other transparent transactions. Any company applying for an account should be incorporated and regulated in the EU, the UK or Switzerland; should follow high KYC and AML standards. The beneficiary, shareholders and top management of the company should have stainless reputation.

Concept of MCA account (Mobile Current Account) was introduced by the bank in the beginning of 2018. This retail bank account integrated into proprietary messenger (Dukascopy Connect 911) created the basic infrastructure for crypto fusion. MCA accounts offer free instant payments, unbeatable currency exchange conditions in 23 currencies, 24/7 support and user-friendly payment cards (plastic and virtual compatible with Apple Pay and Samsung Pay) among other advantages. The first three months of service of the Bank's MCA accounts shows un-precedent high demand from individuals all around the World. Today the Bank opens MCA accounts 24 hours per day 7 days a week using its in-house developed Video Identification technology. The Bank is targeting 1000 daily openings by the end of 2018. This will demand significant development in Compliance infrastructure of the Bank.

The third step of crypto integration for the Bank will include the creation of a crypto gateway. With it, the clients will be able to deposit and withdraw funds in crypto currency on/from accounts with Dukascopy Bank. The introduction of this stage expected during September 2018.

The integration of the Bank to the crypto universe is handled as a top priority and goes fast. At the same time, the Bank insure the application of the highest AML, risk management and regulatory standards of the Swiss banking industry for the operations on the crypto currency market.

Dukascopy Bank lowers the minimum deposit to 1'000 USD for new trading accounts

Dukascopy Bank has decided to lower the minimum deposit required for Individual Trading Accounts. An initial deposit of USD 1'000 is now available for all traders!

Since the introduction of video-identification in 2016, the account opening process can be concluded fully online. This video-identification revolution along with offering retail banking to a broader audience worldwide allowed Dukascopy Bank to lower the cost of account opening both on the clients' and the bank's side.

These lower costs resulted in easier access to the SWFX Swiss FX Marketplace via Dukascopy Bank, and led to this decision of lowering the initial deposit for all traders.

Dukascopy Bank opens trading accounts in 23 currencies and in Gold (USD, CHF, EUR, GBP, AUD, CAD, CZK, DKK, HKD, HUF, ILS, JPY, MXN, NOK, NZD, PLN, RON, RUB, CNH, SEK, SGD, TRY, XAU and ZAR). Clients can fund their accounts by payment cards (Visa, MasterCard, Visa Electron, Maestro), wire transfers (including cheap and fast SEPA transfers in EUR), and via bank guarantees.

Please note that Dukascopy Bank current accounts can be opened without a minimum initial amount restriction. Current account clients can execute payments, order credit cards, exchange currencies and perform investments in different assets including crypto currencies.
