About Us

Hello!

We are Mt Pelerin, and we are building the bank of the future here in Geneva, Switzerland. Being leading experts in the compliant application of the blockchain to finance, we use this technology at our very core to create the perfect ecosystem to usher in the new era of financial digitalization. With it, our ambition is to make individuals and companies benefit from this revolution through unprecedented sources of value, investment and financing opportunities.

About the Brand

The name Mt Pelerin refers to the Mont Pèlerin Society, a group of brilliant economists and intellectuals advocating for an open society and economy driven by free market principles, personal and political liberty, and freedom of expression.

The Mont Pèlerin Society was founded in 1947 at the first conference organized by Professor Friedrich Hayek on the Mont Pèlerin, a small mountain overlooking Lake Geneva, our home. Professor Hayek invited 60 liberal scholars from all over the world to meet and renew the links that had been broken between them by war and nationalism. The society’s founders include Friedrich Hayek, Frank Knight, Karl Popper, Ludwig von Mises, George Stigler, and Milton Friedman, among others. Although these intellectuals represented a mix of schools of thoughts, e.g. the Chicago School of Economics or the Austrian School, they nevertheless all agreed on a desire to promote liberal ideas in the classical sense. The group never aspired to conduct propaganda nor align with any political party. Its sole objective is to facilitate the exchange of views among minds inspired by certain ideals and broad conceptions held in common and to contribute to the preservation and improvement of the free society.

At Mt Pelerin, we believe in a long-term pragmatic banking project that will release the creative energy of individuals. We believe in creating favorable conditions for the banking industry to progress as a whole, while at the same time empowering customers by giving them utmost freedom in the choice and use of financial services.

Those ideals are very dear to us: they represent our values not only in business but in life in general. We also believe that they are completely aligned with the crypto world and its underlying decentralization drive.

We chose the name Mt Pelerin to herald our origins and our moral values.
