How we treat client assets
We maintain a full 1:1 reserve of all client fiat and crypto assets.
We hold the vast majority of crypto assets in secure offline cold storage, protected in underground vaults with maximum security.
Our books are balanced and we carry no debt on our balance sheet. We engage external auditors to undertake an annual audit of our financial statements in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards. This includes verification of all fiat and crypto balances held in custody on behalf of clients.
We maintain complete segregation of all client assets to ensure that when you need to make a withdrawal you can. We keep your assets safe. That is our promise.
Independent Reserve is a sole custodian of all crypto assets held on our platform. Custody is managed in Australia and we do not use any third party custodians.
We adhere to industry best practices and never lend, trade or reinvest your assets.
New Zealand's trusted crypto exchange
As someone who has integrated to over 20 crypto exchanges via their APIs, I can say Independent Reserve has the best API documentation by far.
Their customer support is also excellent which is something most exchanges sadly lack these days.
I organise and host blockchain meetups and conferences and am always hearing very positive things when it comes to Independent Reserve which is why I always recommend them.
They are by far the most trusted exchange in Australia for consumer trading as well as institutional investment, and offer a great 'open order book' unlike most other Australia exchanges.
I find Independent Reserve to be one of the easiest, smoothest cryptocurrency exchanges that I use.
The client onboarding process was simple, it is easy to deposit funds and I particularly like the transparency of market depth and speed of execution.
