Amber is a leading digital asset service company founded in Asia (2017) and operating in over 100 countries. Amber has achieved significant team, revenue, and valuation growth in 4 years. Our team is building the future of digital wealth through sharp execution of our global strategy.
Amber is a 500-person digital-native firm with an inspiring culture and a sharp focus on execution. We have three business lines which correspond to the three explosive growing fields:
• An Institutional business serving the investing needs of asset managers, hedge funds, trading firms, family offices, and corporates.
