Incorporated in 2019, FQX operates a decentralized debt infrastructure for the future of finance. Based on the most recent legislations and DLT technologies, we enable borrowers and investors to directly transact with each other by using our globally standardised debt instruments, called eNotes.

We are a born-global start-up headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, with an international and diverse team of around 25 people based all around Europe and Asia. Our team consists of some of the leading finance, legal and tech experts, and we value a flat hierarchy and an open, integrative culture. FQX is financed by the VC-arm of the Swiss Stock Exchange Group as well as Earlybird VC.

We are committed to an environment in which everyone can provide input, take on responsibility and drive things ahead. Together we solve new challenges and grow, also personally.

We had the privilege to see our cutting-edge innovative solution be recognised by prestigious awards in 2021 such as the Swiss Fintech Award and Fintech Germany Award (Foreign Market Entrant) and Global Finance’s Award for the Best Blockchain Enabled Supply Chain Financing Solution.
