Digital Assets

In the newly established Digital Assets division, Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe bundles all activities for the development and expansion of the product and service spectrum related to digital assets.

What are digital assets for us?

Basically, all assets that are issued and managed in a digital form:


On the one hand, these are all newly created crypto assets, with the currently quite present cryptocurrencies as the most prominent example, but also utility tokens or non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Here, new products have emerged that have not yet been covered by any regulation and will soon be regulated by the so-called Markets in Crypto Assets Regulation (MiCA) at EU level.


On the other hand, these are also already known products, such as securities or money, which are now being newly issued on decentralized systems. One example here is electronic securities, which have been legally possible in Germany since June, or something like the digital euro. These instruments are already covered as financial instruments under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFiD II) and do not need to be newly regulated.

"Anyone involved in investments can no longer ignore digital assets. We see ourselves as a literal service provider and want to offer our customers products and services for digital assets in such a way that they can participate in the topic with the usual reliability of our company - and without having to go through further complex structures or processes."
Simon Seiter, Head of Digital Assets at Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe

Our Services for Digital Assets

We offer our products in an integrative approach along the existing value chain:

  • Starting with pure portfolio management for crypto assets without own administration or settlement.
  • With the provision of a master KVG for the administration of crypto funds with own portfolio management and custody by the customer
  • The registration and administration of crypto securities and crypto fund shares
  • The pure custody and book-entry of crypto securities into the depository of a one-stop-shop for digital asset servicing, where the customer only takes over the portfolio management up to own funds or other investment products for cryptoassets, which we set up in-house ourselves

Digital assets in the different entities

KVG offers access to crypto stocks

With Hauck & Aufhäuser Innovative Capital GmbH (HAIC), Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe has founded a registered KVG for crypto and digital assets in 2020. Through this, we offer investors the opportunity to map investment strategies in the field of digital assets and to participate in the market of this pioneering asset class.  

As the first established provider in Germany, we launched a crypto fund, the HAIC Digital Asset Fund I (HAIC I), at the beginning of 2021 via Hauck & Aufhäuser Innovative Capital GmbH.

Cryptographic key management and more

Custody of crypto assets

Through HADC, the bank can offer custody services for all forms of digital assets. Kapilendo Custodian AG already manages cryptographic keys, known as private keys, which are used to hold, store or transfer digital assets such as cryptocurrencies.
