DTCC senior executives were joined by industry experts to discuss further exploration of digital innovation in the financial services industry at the firm’s recent live-streamed event titled, “DTCC Forum 2020: Digital Transformation in Public and Private Markets.” The event focused on DTCC’s Projects Ion and Whitney, initiatives geared toward making T+0 settlement and asset tokenization a reality.
Moving Fast Without Breaking Things
Rob Palatnick, DTCC Managing Director & Global Head of Technology Research and Innovation, and Jennifer Peve, DTCC Managing Director, Business Innovation, DTCC discuss digital transformation and experimentation, and how market infrastructures are leading creative innovation in the industry.
Advancing the Industry to Accelerated Settlement
How do you improve the world’s most efficient and lowest cost settlement system? By exploring new and alternative settlement models and leveraging the digitization of cash and re-representation of securities. Emmanuel Aidoo Global Head of Digital Asset Markets, Credit Suisse, Artem Korenyuk, DTCC Executive Director, Business Innovation, and Michael McClain, DTCC Managing Director and General Manager of Equity Clearing Services, discuss Project Ion, a potential new accelerated settlement service option with the promise of making T+0 a reality for the U.S. equity markets.
Pioneering Transformation: Digitalization and the Private Markets
With companies staying private longer, the ongoing reliance on manual processes and lack of digital solutions in the private markets creates unnecessary risk and inefficiencies. Jay Biancamano Managing Director, US Head of Digital Products, State Street, Theresa Paraschac, DTCC Executive Director, Global Government Relations and Business Innovation, and Jennifer Peve, DTCC Managing Director, Business Innovation, discuss the potential for Project Whitney to tackle this challenge through asset tokenization and introduction of a digital infrastructure – a complete reimagination of market structure that could transform how the private markets operate.
