22 September 2022 ICMA has published a set of FAQs on Distributed ledger technology (DLT) and blockchain in bond markets. DLT and blockchain represent an exciting new frontier in the evolution of fixed income securities issuance and trading. To raise market awareness and clarify some of the fundamental questions, ICMA and its DLT Bonds Working Group have developed a first set of Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQs”). These FAQs are designed to serve as an entry point for non-experts to gain a basic understanding of DLT bonds and their impact on capital markets.
