Our clients

AMDAX serves both Private Clients and Institutional Clients.

But what is the difference?

Private Clients vs Institutional Clients

AMDAX serves both Private Clients and Institutional Clients. We have noticed that sometimes the difference between the two is not clear. Or that a client would like to use services that stretch both client types. 

All that is OK with us. We just offer the services that you need. However, to get started in the right direction, it helps us to select the client type that suits you best. During your application, please select Private Client or Institutional Client. Below you can find what distinguishes them. And, if you later want to use services from the other ‘bucket’, we will just deliver them.
