The Search for a Balance Between Classic and DLT Operating Models

Distributed ledger technology must coexist with traditional clearing and settlement processes to affect its transformational potential.

Financial services firms have come a long way to standardize and reduce the risk involved in daily operations to support trading and post-trade function. Now, distributed ledger technology can allow them to overcome inefficiencies in securities and payment processing, such as delays in transferring assets and payments across counterparties. The next three years will be crucial for the industry.

This report highlights the impact of adopting DLT-based securities processing on the operations functions that support the classic securities process and the effects over the next few years. It is based on 28 discussions held between January 2023 and June 2023 with industry participants representing firms such as broker-dealers, buy-side firms, custody banks, depository institutions, and solution providers.
