While there have been technological advancements in capital markets and financial services over recent years, significant parts of the lifecycle across various asset types continue to remain resource constrained, error prone and deeply inefficient. These challenges combined with the ever-increasing regulatory burden on existing and new market participants have driven the need for a solution.
Blockchain technology in capital markets, banking, lending, exchanges and other financial services can eliminate these inefficient processes across the entire lifecycle. This movement to embrace blockchain or distributed ledger technology (DLT) to transform capital markets and fintech has been met with a growing appetite for institutional grade investments, traded through fully regulated vehicles by which clients can trade and invest.
This recent increase in innovation in, and adoption of blockchain/DLT based fintech solutions in capital markets across a wide variety of asset types and across all parts of the lifecycle from issuance, through secondary market trading and into post trade administration is significant with respect to the increase in value to the end consumer.
