Swiss regulated securities firm, Taurus, is delighted to announce the full opening of its financial services and TDX marketplace to retail clients, following regulatory approval from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA). The approval signifies Taurus’ commitment to expanding access to its digital asset infrastructure, allowing retail clients to create accounts and trade digital assets and tokenized securities alongside professional clients.

Taurus, recognized as a leader in digital asset infrastructure for banks and corporates, has received approval to extend its services to a broader audience, facilitating the trading of digital securities in a secure and compliant manner. Retail, professional, and institutional investors can now access and trade various digital securities on the TDX marketplace using fiat currencies such as Swiss Franc (CHF), Euro (EUR), and US Dollar (USD).

The expansion of TDX to retail clients brings multiple benefits to both issuers and investors in the market. Companies can now access primary and secondary markets, enhancing the liquidity of digital securities and efficiently raising capital through custom liquidity schemes. Retail investors who participated in capital raises can seamlessly trade digital securities on a user-friendly and secure platform, marking a significant progress for this investor category. Professional investors will continue to trade in more liquid markets with increased participation.

Taurus has appointed Mr. Yann Isola as TDX Head of Product to oversee the design and implementation of the TDX platform across various customer segments. Mr. Isola, an industry veteran with 15 years of experience building trading platforms, joined Taurus in October 2023.

The company is also pleased to announce new tokenized assets from renowned Swiss companies, including Investis Group, la Mobilière, Qoqa, SCCF, Swissroc, and Teylor, that have selected TDX as their preferred venue for trading. This collaboration signifies a step forward in digitizing traditional financial assets and contributing to the growth of the digital asset space.
