The Swiss cryptocurrency-enabled bank Seba has rebranded itself as Amina Bank AG in a significant move. This change, announced on November 30, 2023, marks a critical moment for the bank as it seeks to expand its trading services worldwide.
The decision to rebrand originated from the need to distinguish itself from SEB Bank in Sweden. The name ‘Amina’ is inspired by ‘transamination,’ symbolizing the transfer and integration of various banking elements. This new identity encapsulates the bank’s mission to converge traditional, digital, and crypto banking sectors.
Amidst this rebranding, Amina has been actively broadening its reach. The bank has been granted a license by the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission to provide cryptocurrency trading services in Hong Kong. Additionally, in 2022, Amina received financial services permission from the Abu Dhabi Global Market, further solidifying its presence in key financial hubs.
Founded in April 2018, Seba Bank made history in 2019 by becoming one of the first institutions under FINMA regulation to offer crypto banking services. Fast forward to today, the bank, now Amina, has secured licenses in Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi, enabling a broader range of financial services, including the handling and advisory of both digital and traditional assets.
Amina aims to accelerate growth in strategic locations like Switzerland, Hong Kong, and Abu Dhabi. This expansion is not just about geographical reach; it’s about cementing Amina’s position as a key player in the evolving world of crypto banking. The bank aims to continue bridging the gap between traditional finance and the burgeoning world of digital assets.
