Responding to institutional demand for operational best practice in digital asset markets, BCB Group was created by established thought leaders in finance, regulation and technology.


BCB Group was founded in the UK in 2017 by Oliver von Landsberg-Sadie (CEO) and Oliver Tonkin (General Counsel), fellow MBA post-graduates of City of London’s Cass Business School.

BCB was built to service the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry with the promise of providing durable financial infrastructure in a volatile environment.

Our all-star leadership team has worked for Barclays, Credit Suisse, BDO, Deutsche Bank, Investec, Lloyds Commercial Bank, Norton Rose Fulbright, FIS and Sun Life of Canada.


Our board is made up of highly experienced finance professionals and technology pioneers, combining deep industry knowledge with innovation leadership.

In January 2020, BCB Group’s core operating subsidiary, BCB Payments Limited, secured its Authorised Payment Institution (API) licence from the UK Financial Conduct Authority, establishing itself as the first and only crypto-focused Authorised Payment Institution.
