21finance adds banking service to unique digital marketplace with Bankhaus von der Heydts


Munich (DE)/ Ruggell (FL), 21.09.2021. The fintech 21finance will henceforth collaborate with Bankhaus von der Heydt, one of the oldest institutions in Europe and also a blockchain pioneer. The joint offering, which adds banking services to 21finance’s existing digital marketplace, is aimed at financial institutions and intermediaries: as of now, they will have the opportunity to operate a regulated and digital platform under their own brand, combined with classic banking solutions. The modular structure of the platform allows customers to flexibly and easily choose between individual services such as trading and custody of traditional and tokenized securities or cryptocurrencies.

The joint offering provides banks, asset and wealth managers, issuing houses, and sales organizations throughout Europe with a fast and cost-effective entry into digital direct sales. They also benefit from an all-round digital service and direct access to digital assets. In addition to the onboarding of individuals and legal entities and the marketplace on which financial products can be presented, the complete package also includes issuance-specific subscription lines for tokenized and traditional securities, including the presentation of orders placed in an investment overview.

With the cooperation, the necessary banking-as-a-service services such as the connection of cash accounts, the paying agent, the custody or trading of traditional and tokenized assets, liability umbrella services and much more are available immediately and digitally.


Increase revenue with turnkey digital marketplace

“Demand is high and we are experiencing an increasing need for platform-based solutions among our customers. Through our cooperation with 21finance, we can now offer our customers a turnkey digital marketplace for real assets.” – Philipp Doppelhammer, Member of the Executive Board Bankhaus von der Heydt.

“Together with Bankhaus von der Heydt, we are now giving B2B customers a fully managed white label technology to create, scale and automate their end-to-end offerings for private and public placements. Digitizing the entire value chain can significantly reduce our customers’ costs, open up new markets and revenue channels, and thereby increase sales.” – Max Heinzle, founder and CEO of 21finance.

“The jointly developed solution is characterized by the agile structure of the platform. Depending on the needs of each customer and the existing licenses, services can be added or removed. With this flexibility, we can meet the needs of a wide variety of customers.” – Sebastian Liebscher, Vice President Bankhaus von der Heydt.


Expansion of the range of services already planned

The joint offering is constantly being further developed and adapted to the needs of the market. Work is already underway on various new product features. Bankhaus von der Heydt and 21finance enable banks and financial service providers to fully enter digital banking without having to neglect traditional investments.
