Talos and Taurus collaborate to provide industry-leading trading and custody technology for institutional clients
Geneva, Switzerland, March 28, 2023 - Taurus SA (“Taurus”), the European leading digital asset infrastructure provider, and Talos, the premier provider of institutional digital asset trading technology, today announce a partnership to jointly provide industry-leading trading and custody technology to institutional clients.
Talos has integrated with Taurus-PROTECT, the top-tier digital asset custody solution for banks. Through this partnership - already in production with clients in Europe and Americas - financial institutions and large organizations not only benefit from cutting-edge trading and custody + tokenization technology, but most importantly take advantage of a fully pre-integrated platform. This allows them to:
- Access global liquidity and trade through Talos’s award-winning trading platform, while protecting their assets and innovating via Taurus’s leading custody + tokenization technology
- View live wallet balances and initiate settlement transactions directly through Talos’s trading platform while maintaining governance rules on Taurus-PROTECT
- Reduce operational risks related to settlement.
- Shorten time-to-market
- Save costs and reduce integration to zero;
Since the launch of its platform in 2018, Talos has demonstrated the product-market fit of its institutional-grade technology which powers the full trade lifecycle for digital asset trading, settlement, and more via a single point of access. The B2B SaaS company’s client base spans the entire digital asset ecosystem from buy-side institutions (crypto/hedge funds, systematic funds, and asset managers) to sell-side service providers (broker-dealers, banks, OTC desks, and custodians). In the last few years, Talos has continued to innovate with an expanded product suite that includes complementary solutions like “Portfolio, Treasury, and Settlement”, “Data and Analytics”, and a White Label trading interface via its White Label for Brokers offering.
In addition, Taurus SA has now been on-boarded as a formal client of Talos to leverage its powerful White Label for Brokers solution. By using Talos’s dealer technology to power its new OTC desk, Taurus can offer its end-customers top-notch liquidity access, best-execution capabilities, and a self-service trading portal.
As the leading institutional trading platform for digital assets, Talos powers billions (notional in USD) of its customers’ trading on a weekly basis. As Talos continues to expand its presence across the globe from the Americas to the Asia-Pacific, and now to the rapidly growing EMEA market, its new client Taurus joins an exciting roster of customers that provide crucial digital asset solutions to institutional segments.
We are pleased to have integrated Talos’s solutions to provide easy-to-use turnkey solutions and save most integration costs between trading and custody to our banking and consumer brands clients.
“Talos is a leading and trusted trading technology provider for institutions. We are pleased to have integrated Talos’s solutions to provide easy-to-use turnkey solutions and save most integration costs between trading and custody to our banking and consumer brands clients.” said Lamine Brahimi, co-founder and managing partner at Taurus. “Further, through the Talos collaboration, Taurus continues to support its open architecture model by providing more choice to its clients to use the best solutions available in the market.”
“Quality partnerships with industry leaders like Taurus are a critical part of our growth strategy and, more importantly, to the growth of the industry. The ability to integrate Taurus-PROTECT into our offering provides increased security and optionality for our clients which is more important than ever in today’s markets. Both our company's values are aligned with our mutual emphasis on security and transparency as well as our focus on scalability and product-market fit.” said Talos CEO and co-founder Anton Katz. “Not only can Taurus customers now add Talos trading tech and be able to view their Taurus balances and execute settlement seamlessly, but we also trust that by powering their OTC desk with our White Label for Brokers solution combined with our 24/7 white glove support, Taurus will leap to new heights in Europe and abroad.”
