Our brand claim remains the same as with SEBA: Crypto. Banking. Simplified.
Why do we change our name?
We opted to change our name from SEBA Bank due to similarities with SEB Bank in Sweden.

AMINA is the new name; we keep our successful history
The AMINA journey started in February 2018 when SEBA Crypto AG was founded.
One year later, in August 2019, SEBA received a Swiss banking license from FINMA. SEBA Bank AG was born. Later this year, the multi-year award-winning SEBA Crypto Asset Select Index (SEBAX) was launched.
In 2020, SEBA’s institutional-grade solution for digital custody completed independent audits about the implemented processes and controls. Since then, our digital custody solutions have been certified yearly, offering our clients the highest security standards.
In 2021, SEBA secured the first institutional license to custody collective investment schemes for digital assets in Switzerland. It also expanded its offering by adding several cryptocurrencies and launched discretionary mandates to support investors in their strategic asset allocations.
In 2022, LGT Bank selected SEBA to provide digital asset custody and brokerage services. The same year, the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) granted SEBA a Financial Services Permission, leading to the creation of SEBA Bank AG, ADGM Branch.
In 2023, the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission awarded SEBA (Hong Kong) Ltd a licence to conduct regulated activities. SEBA partnered with the St.Galler Kantonal Bank (SGKB) in Switzerland.
