The R3 Story

Industry-wide collaboration is in our DNA

R3 is an enterprise software firm working with a network of over 200  financial institutions, regulators, trade associations, professional services firms and technology companies to develop on Corda, our blockchain platform designed specifically for businesses.

Our global team of over 180 professionals in thirteen countries is supported by over 2,000 technology, financial, and legal experts drawn from our global ecosystem.

We are the only enterprise blockchain software firm that combines the critical components for success:

  • Innovative technology
  • Wall Street experience
  • Industry-wide collaboration
  • Regulatory engagement

Built from the ground up

Realizing early on that traditional public blockchain technologies were not the right starting point for the problems we aspired to solve in business, we rethought the blockchain concept from top to bottom and uncovered a revolutionary new approach to linking businesses that massively reduces cost, risk and duplication.

The new operating system for finance and beyond

Corda is the outcome of over two years of intense research and development by R3 and our members and meets the highest standards of the financial services industry, and yet is applicable to any commercial scenario. It records, manages and executes institutions’ financial agreements in perfect synchrony with their peers, creating a world of frictionless commerce.
