Zug, Switzerland – 12 November 2021 | SEBA Bank, a fully integrated, FINMA licensed digital assets banking platform, has won the “Best ETP of the Year” Award in the Swiss ETF Awards 2022 for SEBA Crypto Asset Select Index (SEBAX®), which is publicly listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange.
Presented by Xenix and finanzen.ch, the Swiss ETF Awards 2022 honor ETFs and ETPs listed in Switzerland in 2021 across seven categories. SEBAX® was selected as the “Best ETP of the Year”, trumping nominations from well-known Swiss and global ETP providers. The winner, judged on excellence in delivery, innovation, and customer impact, was chosen by a public vote.
The SEBAX® index leverages SEBA Bank’s one of a kind SEBA Research unit which applies the highest standards and complies with the Swiss Bankers Association research guidelines, and offers investors a diversified cryptocurrency market exposure while optimizing overall risk. As a second generation crypto-currency index the SEBAX® index is what one would refer to as a “smart beta index”, employing a unique coin selection and weighting methodology. In addition to market cap, the SEBAX® index employs a risk optimization approach which weights cryptocurrencies in inverse proportion to their risk (“risk parity”). The two-year live track record speaks for itself, and is a testament to SEBA Bank´s mission to serve as a secure and convenient bridge into the digital asset world.
Stefan Schwitter, Head of Investment Solutions at SEBA Bank, commented, “We are delighted to receive recognition for SEBAX® in the Best Swiss ETP category by the public. We are proud of the two-year live track record of the SEBAX® Index having delivered twice the performance of Bitcoin at the same level of risk – a clear leadership position in the crypto space.”
