“Financial institutions today have to ask themselves how they aim to cater the increasing demand for modern investing solutions. Building these Individually, means a high startup cost, and products that are often outdated before they are even launched.”

Bitpanda has announced the launch of its software-as-a-service offering globally, with new features, asset classes, and several regulatory licenses.

Lukas Enzersdorfer-Konrad, Deputy CEO of the Bitpanda Group will lead the newly launched Investment-as-a-Service business as CEO of Bitpanda Technology Solutions.

The Viena-headquartered finteh already serves more than 20 million customers with its initial White Label API. Bitpanda will now enter a new growth phase with the newly available investing-as a-service infrastructure offering.

A trading and investing product for crypto, stocks and precious metals

Bitpanda Technology Solutions (BTS) now allows fintechs, traditional banks and online platforms to offer trading, investing and custody services across Stocks/ETF’s, Cryptocurrencies, Precious Metals and Commodities.

Lukas Enzersdorfer-Konrad, CEO of Bitpanda Technology Solution, commented: “Financial institutions today have to ask themselves how they aim to cater the increasing demand for modern investing solutions. Building these Individually, means a high startup cost, and products that are often outdated before they are even launched. Simply put, institutions can’t do this themselves if they want both a fast time to market and high compliance standards. By partnering with us, they can open up new revenue streams while retaining their customers. Fully customisable, fully safe, fully secure, and fully regulated. Your design, our technology.”
