Internaxx joins the Swissquote family
_

In 2020, Internaxx will become Swissquote Bank Europe and introduce a new web platform and mobile apps.

Under the Swissquote brand, Internaxx will continue to provide outstanding service to clients in Europe as well as expats and global citizens around the world. Regulated as a bank in Luxembourg, in the heart of the EU, clients will continue to enjoy the same financial consumer protections and guarantees, as well as the added reassurance that a large publicly traded banking group can provide.

As the leading online bank/broker in Switzerland, Swissquote will enable product range expansions and platform enhancements to better serve the differentiated needs of investors and traders.

Internaxx and Swissquote already share the same values, so operating under a single Swissquote brand will help Internaxx serve more people in more places. As Internaxx becomes Swissquote Bank Europe, you will notice changes in visual identity, including the logo, colours and website address.
