Get to Know Nexo’s Fundamentals-First Model

The five key mechanisms behind our sustainable business model and the successful protection of your assets.

Is Fundamental

We lend funds only to borrowers that meet our strict collateralization requirements. This policy distinguishes us from other firms in our sector that issue under- or uncollateralized loans, thus exposing their clients to risk. Even the largest and most trusted institutions do not receive credit from Nexo without sufficient collateral.

Real-Time Auditing
Is Fundamental

To set the standard for transparency in the industry, Nexo is working with Armanino LLP to provide real-time attestations over the company’s custodial holdings. With this reserves audit – a pioneering move for the crypto lending space – we give you the ultimate peace of mind that Nexo is able to meet client obligations at all times.

Risk Management
Is Fundamental

Nexo deploys market-neutral strategies like collateralized lending, basis trading, and market making. This allows us to maintain a strong liquidity position, meet credit demand, and continue our growth. By offering a holistic suite of products such as the Nexo Exchange, Nexo Prime, and Nexo Ventures we make sure clients’ needs are serviced while generating sizeable revenues.

Is Fundamental

Through custody partners such as Ledger Vault and Bakkt, among others, Nexo has a comprehensive network of custody and insurance providers. Collectively, they provide insurance protections on custodial assets via the most prestigious underwriters, including Lloyd’s of London, and Marsh & Аrch.

Global Licensing
Is Fundamental

Holding over 50 licenses, Nexo has gone the extra mile in ensuring compliance with the applicable regulatory frameworks. Together with our top-tier legal counsel and engaging proactively with the regulatory decision-makers we ensure the sustainability of our products for years to come.
