This marks an important real world application for the technology as the DTCC’s current Trade Information Warehouse (TIW) automates more than $11 trillion of cleared and bilateral credit derivatives.

David Rutter, CEO of R3, stated: “We’re very excited to be working with this team, as DTCC seeks to enhance its derivatives processing technology. Distributed ledger technology is a natural fit for derivatives processing. By recording and automatically managing shared records of financial agreements in the cloud without error, it can minimize the steps required for post-trade processing and free up middle and back office staff from the onerous task of reconciliation.”
