Doing things the right way

Since 2013, Independent Reserve has adhered to strong corporate governance and risk management controls. Our board of directors, advisers and management team bring decades of experience in regulation, traditional finance, risk management and IT security. Becoming the first crypto exchange to be licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is a strong testament to our business conduct.

Licensed and audited

We engage independent external auditors to undertake an annual audit of our financial statements as required by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. This includes verification of all fiat and crypto balances held in custody on behalf of clients.

ISO 27001 certified

Our people, processes, tools, and systems adhere to a globally recognised standard. We’ve built world-class operational systems from the ground up to secure your data and digital assets: two-factor authentication, email alerts, and encryption. We also conduct regular penetration testing to ensure the integrity of our systems.

Segregated funds

Our customer funds are held separately from our company’s operational funds. We do not use customer assets and funds for investments. We just hold it until you need it.
