Accelerated settlement

Faster settlement, while reducing risks and costs.

Journey to faster post-trade settlement

Today, a trade takes two days for assets and cash to change hands, but in May 2024 the securities settlement cycle goes from two days post trade (T+2) to one day (T+1) in the U.S. Real-time settlement enabled by blockchain reduces the need to spread reserves across multiple exchanges—optimizing capital and reducing costs and risks. 

Reduce risk
Shortening settlement windows reduces counterparty, operational and market risk.

Settle instantaneously
Leverage digitalization and modernized systems to enable atomic settlement, 24/7 operations, and continuous trading of assets.

Increase liquidity
Reduced risk enables lower margin requirements and the release of greater capital.

Meet capital and liquidity needs
Move digital currencies and assets directly between entities and across borders.

Innovation and transformation in securities settlement

How a digital asset exchange can co-exist with a traditional stock exchange

An existing stock exchange can segue post-trade infrastructure into existing infrastructure. It can both future proof their ability to expand assets that they trade, gain access to new audiences, as well as reverse that technology into existing legacy infrastructure.
