OSL is regulated as a virtual asset service provider to operate a brokerage, including security tokens (“STOs”) under a license for Type 1 (dealing in securities) by the Securities and Futures Commission (“SFC”) virtual asset licensing framework in Hong Kong. OSL Brokerage is built for professional investors (individuals, corporates and institutions)*.
OSL’s combination of experienced traders, deep global relationships and advanced technology allow OSL Brokerage to match large institutional blocks across major digital assets including bitcoin (BTC) and ethereum (ETH).
OSL’s over-the-counter (OTC) trading combines access to unparalleled market liquidity with complete privacy and guaranteed price quotes. Each trade is conducted and executed directly against the counterpart and with no on-exchange price slippage or order book discovery. This ensures instant, seamless, secure transactions with near instant settlement.
Access to OSL intelligent Request For Quote (RFQ) technology, an efficient and secure trading environment that provides ‘one-click access’ to a number of token options. OSL offers REST API integration to improve your trading activities:

OSL Digital Securities Limited (OSLDS) abides by the Guidance for a Risk-Based Approach to Virtual Assets and Virtual Asset Service Providers adopted by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
Under the guidance, Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs) have the obligation to obtain, hold, and transmit required originator and beneficiary information, immediately and securely, when conducting VA transfers.
As there is no established information sharing ecosystem for virtual assets between VASPs, OSLDS requires that all VA deposit / withdrawal is done via a wallet that you as the client controls.
After you have successfully onboarded, we will contact you for “proof of control” in order to verify that you own the provided wallet. Proof of control may be done by way of a micropayment or by a signing procedure using your private key.
* Please refer to the Securities and Futures (Professional Investor) Rules for the definition of “Professional Investor”.For more information, contact us at: [email protected]
