Institutional Investors require a secure and compliant partner.
Our vertically integrated services allow clients to meet their digital asset custody, trading, lending, borrowing,

At Protego Trust, we embrace innovative technology and investment approaches while operating in a regulated environment.

A patent-pending custody solution provides a superior level of security for both fiat currencies and digital assets, while also allowing for on-chain participation via staking and voting. Our trading and liquidity platform offers seamless and efficient execution. Protego’s lending product enables peer-to-peer lending on an institutional scale. Our issuer services allow for the creation and digitization of all types of assets, on both private and public blockchains.

Highly Regulated Custodian
Protego understands institutional clients seek a custody partner regulated at the highest level. That is why we sought a federal charter.
Protego's custody infrastructure is uniquely secure and highly available. Clients can implement customized workflows, approvals, and entitlements.
Secure Crypto Custody
Private keys never exist in a single location. Protego offers HA fast-MPC with secure hardware isolation (EAL5+ & FIPS 140-2 level 4).
Guaranteed uptime and deep liquidity allows trades of all sizes to be executed efficiently when needed most. Protego Trust is built to handle institutional trading volume, aggregating liquidity from global crypto exchange partners with Protego’s natural order flow for efficient execution.
Agency Trading Only
As an agency-only bank, Protego does not trade on its own account, so we never face a client in a trade.
Low Risk Settlement
Protego operates a fully reserved trading platform, eliminating the chance of a trade breaking because a counterparty fails to deliver. Our multilateral net settlement process minimizes both risk and on-chain fees.
Protego’s multi-source liquidity aggregation and API endpoints for trading lead to fast and efficient execution of all order sizes.
Through its DeFi-like institutional lending platform, Protego Trust facilitates peer-to-peer digital asset and fiat lending within the walls of a trust bank.
The lending platform enables clients to earn passive income by lending their assets out with confidence and regulatory clarity.
Client-to-client direct lending through a central platform means that clients do not have to deal with a principal trading desk.
All lending transactions have to be fully collateralized by the borrower. Pledged collateral is locked and can never leave the Protego Custody environment. Variation margin calls will be administered on a frequent basis.
Issuance allows asset owners to bring digital assets to market. Protego clients can instantly custody, distribute, trade, and lend their originated tokens.
As a regulated trust bank we facilitate the issuance of tokens on private and public blockchains while complying with regulatory requirements.
When digitized, assets that were previously undiscoverable and illiquid become available and easily transferable.
Instant Asset Launch
Secondary digital issuance allows asset owners to tokenize traditional assets and instantaneously support custody, trading, and lending of these assets no matter if they are securities or not.
