Future Roles at Copper in Switzerland



Posted on Thursday, July 27, 2023
Copper is a digital asset technology company dedicated to helping institutional investors safely acquire, trade, and store crypto assets.

Built and led by Dmitry Tokarev, a software and financial engineering specialist, the firm provides a comprehensive suite of custody, trading and settlement solutions that reduce counterparty risk and bring greater capital and operational efficiency to digital asset markets. At the heart of Copper's offering is Multi-Party Computation (MPC) technology – the gold standard in secure custody. Copper’s multi-award winning custody system is unique in that it can be connected to centralised exchanges, DeFi applications and even staking pools without the assets leaving the custody.

Built on top of this state-of-the-art custody, ClearLoop™ is the first solution in the market that overcomes a growing industry challenge; counterparty risk with exchanges. This solution underpins a full prime services offering, connecting global exchanges and enabling customers to trade and settle directly from the safety of their MPC-secured wallets. By reducing settlement time for transfers to a few milliseconds (without blockchain network dependency) and offering enhanced security measures, ClearLoop™ is rapidly reshaping the way asset managers trade and manage capital.

In addition to industry-leading security certifications, Copper has one of the strongest insurance coverages in the industry from an A+ rated insurer, positioning the firm as the partner of choice for institutions seeking to safeguard their assets.

Insurance overview

Swiss social security system

The Swiss social security system is based on the so–called “three pillar system.”
1st pillar
Compulsory federal old-age and survivors’ insurance, which should guarantee a basic minimum income. The OASI deduction for employees is 5.3%
2nd pillar
Compulsory pension plans that aim at maintaining an accustomed style of living after retirement. (Insured with AXA Insurance Ltd)
3rd pillar
Voluntary individual savings. (Switzerland is noted for its high rate of personal savings.) The employer has neither an obligation to participate nor usually does pay any contributions / premiums to the third pillar.
