The Banking Services Available with our Business Accounts
Here at BCB Group, we offer the most complete business banking solution on the market, making us the ideal partner for any institutions currently operating in or looking to operate in the digital asset economy.
We understand that your needs may change over time, and to accommodate that, we’ve created a platform that supports most major world currencies, including GBP, EUR, and USD – amongst others. By offering our customers this flexibility within their business account portal, alongside the ability to utilise a range of major payment networks such as UK FPS, CHAPS, BACS, Euro SEPA, international SWIFT, and US ABA, our customers can undertake transfers and transactions.
When you choose BCB Group as your banking partner, you’ll be working with an industry-leading team in the digital asset payments management and crypto space. As one of our clients, you’ll have access to the latest tools, services, and benefits ahead of all others in the market. To help you understand the benefits that you’ll receive as a BCB business account partner, we’ve put together a comprehensive run-through of all of our key features below, to explain how our business accounts work and why they’re the ideal choice for any company in the digital assets ecosystem:
The first feature that you’ll be given as a BCB business account holder is the functionality of an all-purpose payment account. With a BCB Group account, you’re given far more security and safety when it comes to transactions relating to trading and crypto banking – this includes third party deposits and payments.
Our accounts are designed to take the difficulty out of the payments that you’ll be making as a business regularly. You’ll be able to make payments, convert between currencies, and settle a transaction all within one platform, simplifying the entire process. In addition to this, we’ll provide you with a unique named account and IBAN.
Your payment account can be used for fiat on or off-ramp transactions, meaning you will be able to trade fiat money for digital assets (this is known as on-ramp) and is usually a popular way for new users to enter the digital asset space. In addition, you’ll be able to make off-ramp transactions, allowing you to trade your digital assets or cryptocurrency into fiat.
At BCB Group, we offer a variety of features that set our FX markets apart from the competition, most notably our single-digit spreads on all major currency pairs that are on the marketplace, as well as our instant settlement process which enables you to make fast, timely trades and exchanges. This means that you’re able to capitalise in market hotspots and make the most of your existing FX positions.
We currently offer support for over 30 currencies, whilst also remaining incredibly competitive when it comes to institutional rates. This makes BCB Group the ideal partner for all of your institutional and business trading needs. BCB Markets is designed to allow major traders to conduct their activity in a safe and secure place, and our markets and transactions are encrypted with high-level security and protection features, ensuring that each sale and purchase is covered. As a BCB business account partner, one of the biggest benefits that you’ll feel is the flexibility that our accounts offer. For frequent traders or those completing transactions daily, our real-time markets and instant settlements allow you to make crucial decisions quickly, and for less engaged account holders, you’ll still retain that high touch service and high-tech platform to be used 24/7 365 days a year.
Live Monitoring for Business Accounts
As a BCB business account customer, you will have an online portal to view, track and send payments. With BCB Group’s platform, you’ll have all of the management tools you need to ensure that you have a clear view of the total value, as we understand the importance of knowing your position at all times. For this reason, we’ve ensured that our platforms operate in real-time, giving each of our business account holders access to accurate cryptocurrency balances at live market rates for the clearest representation of value possible. To make things easier, you will always be able to view your crypto and asset value in your home currency too, providing real figures and values in an instant.
