Babel Finance, a provider of crypto-asset services, has announced today that it is partnering with Onchain Custodian (ONC) to improve its asset management services tailored towards institutional clients.
Headquartered in Hong Kong, Babel Finance offers its services to institutional clients and high-net-worth individuals. Its services span across asset management, cryptocurrency lending and borrowing, prime services, private bank and mining services.
Under the agreement, Babel has become the latest company to join Onchain Custodian’s custody platform, in which the former provides its asset management products to clients via the latter’s platform.
Through this route, Onchain Custodian offers ancillary services such as crypto borrowing and lending as well as an on and off-ramp between crypto and fiat, OTC and escrow. Thus, users are able to subscribe to asset management products, such as the ones Babel will provide under the partnership.
