The Future of Crypto Risk Management is here.

Don´t trust. Verify.

The IDW PS 951-certified SaaS tool “Crypto Risk Metrics” supports regulated financial institutions in the risk-based assessment of cryptocurrencies, Delta-1 Certificates (“Crypto ETPs”) and tokenized securities. Market conformity checks, KARBV-compliant price data and ESG data complete the product range.

Serving Regulated
Financial Institutions

Regulated financial institutions require adequate solutions for risk-based mapping of the specific challenges in blockchain ecosystems – especially with the entry into force of the “Markets in Crypto Assets Regulation” (MiCAR).

The Crypto Risk Metrics software helps to always be compliant and able to react to new requirements properly at any given time.

The software is also aimed at regulators and authorities – we call this “Embedded Supervision” – as well as auditors who can better fulfill important functions by using the tool.

Distributed ledger technology has the potential to fundamentally optimize the financial world – but also comes with its own challenges and risks. 

The core functions of the Software as a Service include risk management for cryptocurrencies (both natively and indirectly via Delta-1 Certificates), tokenized assets as well as market conformity checks for cryptocurrency trades and the determination of KARBV-compliant valuation data.

In addition, ESG data are offered via partners, which will soon become mandatory for all crypto asset service providers.

  • “Due to the new risks associated with decentralised networks, we have paid particular attention to risk management in order to be adequately positioned. We opted for the DLC tool because it meets our extensive requirements and is continuously optimized.”

  • “After a market screening with the established providers, none of them could offer the quality of Crypto Risk Metrics. Most providers could not provide any offer at all – or one that was not viable from a regulatory perspective, which was not acceptable for us.”

    Markus Vitt
    Spokesman of the Executive Board
    Donner & Reuschel Privatbank AG

  • “Crypto assets have very unique characteristics, which need to be adequately covered in risk management. As a result of an extensive project, we decided on the solution from DLC, as it comprehensively addresses the specific risks. In addition, due to our risk-based approach, we also decided to use the tool for indirect investments in crypto assets, for example via certificates.”

    Falko Pingel
    Head of Risk Management & Data Governance

  • “By using Crypto Risk Metrics, we ensure that we meet our regulatory requirements regarding listing, continuous monitoring and potential delistings of crypto assets at all times. This tool also enables us to realize a market conformity check, which is also required by law for every financial commission agent and proprietary trader.” 

    Raphael Neuberger
    Head Digital Assets
    V-Bank AG

  • “The decision in favor of the solution from DLC was based on the fact that, unlike all other traditional providers, the tool adequately addresses blockchain-specific risks – and therefore has a unique selling point in this young market.”
