Regulatory-first Institutional Principles

BCB Group is a leading global provider of business accounts and trading services for institutions in the digital asset economy, regulated in the UK and Switzerland.

We provide payments processing for the pillars of the industry in dozens of fiat and cryptocurrencies.

Our institutional clients can trade FX and cryptocurrencies quickly and at scale, with market-leading value.

Responding to corporate and institutional demand for essential and excellent infrastructure 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 (previous CEO) and CEO Oliver Tonkin (co-founder, former Deputy CEO and former General Counsel), fellow MBA post-graduates of City of London’s Cass Business School.

BCB Group 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, Coinbase, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, FIS, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, 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.
